Illwald trail

  • 2h15
  • 9km
  • 170m
  • Suitable for everyone

Marked loop of a red ring, about 9 km long, allowing to discover a representative sample of the landscapes and habitats of the Ill*Wald, a regional nature reserve: wet hay meadows interspersed with hedges and reeds, an alluvial forest of 1,500 ha in which 28 tree species develop, among which ash, oak and alder reign supreme, marsh habitats, a dense and varied network of rivers, witness, with the groundwater sometimes flush with the groundwater, to the omnipresence of water in this humid area.

On the way, the attentive walker may have the chance to see a few individuals of the largest wild fallow deer herd in France.

Due to the chalarose of the ash tree, access to the forest is limited and only one loop of the Club Vosgien is accessible to the public.
Risks of falling branches/trees persist until the road safety work is completed.
During this period, traffic in the forest is prohibited in windy conditions.
