On this wet, acidic and barren soil only "survivors" such as the carnivorous sundew, cotton grass, or the plain Ried grass can flourish. On the dryer edge, the so-called heath, even blueberries and Alpine roses can grow.
The high moor is situated at the Amdener Mountain Trail, which leads from the valley station of the Mattstockchairlift via the Hintere Höhi Mountain to Arvenbüel. The high moorland is reached on foot in about 50 minutes, the entire mountain trail tour takes approx. 2.5 hours.
