Federal hunting area and forest reser …

The largest stone pine forest
Map
In Fellital is the largest stone pine forest on the north side of the alps. As this area is far away from the valley, logging was never actively carried out here. Since 2014, it has been a forest reserve and for the next 80 years will remain untouched. At the same time, Fellital is a federal hunting area.

A 'piggish' transport
Map
Up until after World War II, pigs (10-20kg) were regularly taken over the Chrüzli pass from Sedrun to Uri. In order to do this, the small pigs were put in baskets or sacks and carried over the mountains. When they arrived in Uri, they were fattened by farmers from Bristen and the surrounding areas.

Hut and alp rights

The rights owned by families
Map
In contrast to the cooperative system in the inner circle, the hut and alp rights throughout the rest of the region belong to families. The maximum number of livestock allowed on an alp is dependent on how many alp rights are connected to the right to have a hut.
