Elevation profile


Comfortable tour with a short, steep ascent, on good forest paths through the beautiful valley Gleirschtal.
The route starts at the Scharnitz Information Office / Länd car park and follows a low-traffic, asphalted municipal road for the first 1.5 km. Shortly before the inn Gasthof Wiesenhof, the well-drivable forest path begins straight ahead over the Gleirschhöhe to the junction Gleirschtal in approx. 4.5 km. After a rapid descent and crossing of the Isar, the ascent follows - the so-called "Krapfen". This is the only part where endurance and stamina are required. After reaching the Gleirschtalanhöhe, passing magnificent alpine pastures, you reach a junction, where you continue in the direction of the Möslalm. At the next junction you can either drive straight ahead or keep right and after a short steep ascent you will reach the Möslalm. Now you have earned a hearty and tasty meal at the rustic Möslalm. Starting point for various mountain tours, e.g. to the Hohe Gleirsch. Continuation from the Möslalm to the Pfeishütte possible (very steep), see route description 581. Back on the same path. Attention pasture cattle, please keep distance and cross the pasture area calmly and quickly.
