Das viertgrösste Hochmoor der Schweiz besticht durch landschaftliche Schönheit mit seltenen Tieren und Pflanzen. Es beinhaltet eine Fläche von 384 Hektaren und besteht aus den zwei Teilen Schwantenau und Roblosen. Die Moorlandschaft ist eine Restfläche des heutigen Sihlsees. Ein grosser Teil des Hochmoors wurde in den letzten 200 Jahren als Torf für Brenn- und Isoliermaterial abgetragen. Die Spuren vom Torfabbau sind als gewaltige Torfstichkanten nicht zu übersehen.
