The Kernwald adventure trail.
The Kernwald is a forest in the canton of Obwalden that borders the Unterwalden half-cantons. A prehistoric landslide from the Stanserhorn has created a unique landscape that is immortalized in stories and legends. Its uniqueness makes the Kernwald a landscape of national significance.

The Chärwald robbers trail reveals its secrets at 11 different posts, including a treasure hunt and play opportunities for younger visitors. Well-marked trails lead to different Chärwald robbers who reveal their story. Information boards provide interesting insights into the history and customs of bygone times.
The path leads to a very special lake, the Gerzensee, which is fed only by groundwater and is located in a nature reserve. Along the way, you will come across a tree with a telescope. When the weather is good, you can see the small chapel at Holzwang near the Stanserhorn.
