Along the geological path you will find a lot of signs and stations that shows the geology and the connected relations. The main attraction of the trail is the "Höllenbach" catastrophe of 1986. Following the path you will arrive on a big rock of tufa and the S. Nepomuk santuary. This rock last a violent mudslud and reminds the power of nature. The next sign reminds the mudslide of 1986. Just a short look to the panorama shows the different layers of rock from Montan to Weis and Schwarzhorn. Nearby you will find another rock. That's a Voltago conglomerate who resisted a mudslide 245 millions of years ago. After it there's the possibility to take a little break on a quiet island with 5 columns and a little bench with some small different rockets from the sourroundings. On the dam of the river a sign will explane you the different layers of the rock infront of you. The last sign indicate some fossils which where found in the river bed and with a bit of luck also you could find one. 

From the Rathausplatz (main square) head along the Hans-Feur-Straße street, the town's main road, till to the fairground, direction Söll. On the curve infront of the Hotel Winzerhof just take the gravel path beside the Höllental stream. If you want you can extend the hike and take trail 10 direction Psenner/Gummerer. After approx. 1km follow the path 4 direction Zogglerwiese and back on the forest street (path 4A-4B) direction Söll. From there you will arrive to the nature path and after approx. 50 minutes you will be right back at Termeno.
