Route: Leutasch Salzbach parking – Alpine Hut Wettersteinhütte – Alpine Hut Wangalm – Gehrenspitze Summit

The starting point for this bike & hike tour is the Salzbach parking lot in Gaistal. Here, however, you do not follow the path into the valley, but the asphalt road back to Klamm. At the "Fiakerstüberl" turn north and follow the road before you reach a frost road (gravel). From now on it goes constantly steep uphill. The beauty of the route is the dense forest with shady trees and many nice resting places. The forest road is easy to ride and winds uphill in several curves bends, but also long, almost flat sections. Above the tree line, about 100 hm below the Wettersteinhütte and the Wangalm, you should leave your bikes and tackle the last section on foot.

From here the path becomes very steep and rough gravel. After 10 minutes of walking you reach a cross: On the right is the Wangalm, on the left the Wettersteinhütte. Both destinations offer fantastic panoramic view. The huts are south-facing, so that in good weather you can enjoy the sunn all day. Attention grazing cattle, please keep your distance and cross the grazing area quietly and quickly. Keep right at the cross and hike to the Wangalm. Here, at the latest, it is necessary to park the bicycles. The rest of the way to the Gehrenspitze must now be done on foot. Starting from the Wangalm, the hiking path leads through the Scharnitztal valley to the Scharnitzjoch and to the non-operated Erinnerungshütte. Here you can take a well-deserved break and enjoy the unique view of the Puittal valley. Then follow the well-marked paths to the Gehrenspitze. Once at the summit, there is a wonderful wide view to the Hohe Munde and the Leutasch valley.
