Route: Train station Gießenbach bei Scharnitz – Giessenbach valley – Eppzirler Tal – Eppzirler Alm

The hike starts at the train station in Giessenbach near Scharnitz, or at the hiking parking lot Giessenbach P5/P6 and leads upstream through the picturesque Giessenbach valley. Follow the forest path steeply at the beginning, then a bit more leisurely along the mountain stream. At the fork in the road, keep to the right. The trail goes steeply uphill for a short distance, then continues more flatly through wooded areas and slightly downhill across alpine meadows into a small valley. The last stretch to the Eppzirler Alm is slightly uphill.
