Route: Scharnitz – Gießenbach – Woods Bauernwald – Seefeld - Scharnitz

Opposite the church at House Frankenhof, go along road Hirlanda-Ellman-Straße and, before the bridge, turn left uphill to the forest track towards Gießenbach. At the fork in Gießenbach keep to your right, passing the archery range and on to the Aukenthaler saw mills. Keep to the right on the road towards Leutasch for about 500 m, then turn left at the fork into the woods and follow the path for about 3 km to the hut Bodenalm (keep left); or keep following the forest track to the inn Triendlsäge (a short steep uphill section just before the restaurant). From the inn Triendlsäge follow the road about 1 km to the centre of Seefeld. Return by the same route or via the Hirnweg path turning right to the Magic Castle, passing the castle on your right then downhill to Gießenbach. Cross over the road directly at the entrance to the Eppzirltal valley and cycle back towards Scharnitz on the walking path, passing inn Gasthof Ramona on your way.
