Teufelslochklamm (Devil’s Hole Gorge) / Trail no. 56

Route: Scharnitz / information office – Hinterautalstraße – Teufelslochklamm
Walking time: approx. 1.5 hours
Starting at the information office, cross the bridge, turn left before the church and follow the road
Hinterautalstraße as far as House Taxi Mair. Turn right there and follow the road until you come to
a slightly uphill forest track. Follow this trail to the branch-off which is sign-posted as 'Teufelslochklamm'
(devil’s hole ravine), then continue along the well-marked track towards the gorge. From
the track, which drops steeply in places, you can see the 'painted devil' on the rock face. A short,
steep climb, with safety ropes in place, takes you out of the gorge before you continue along a
woodland track to the lower Kreidegraben. From there it’s downhill all the way on the forest track
towards Hinterautal, past the hut Scharnitzer Alm. Follow the river Isar back to Scharnitz either
along the Isarsteig track or along the road. Not suitable for pushchairs.
