Long, strenuous but worthwhile round trip around the Wetterstein mountains!
The panoramic and only slightly ascending forest path begins at the Salzbach car park and runs along the Leutascher Ache, past the Gaistal- & Tillfussalm in the direction of Seebensee / Ehrwald. Shortly after the Iglsee the forest road branches off, keep right here and follow the steep forest road to the Ehrwalder Alm. From the Ehrwalder Alm it is mostly downhill, the Ganghoferstraße to the centre of Ehrwald. Follow the cycle path along the main road uphill past the Grainau war memorial chapel. On the Höhenrain-Panoramaweg down to the Hotel Waxenstein. Follow the road towards Eibsee to the upper village square in Grainau. Follow the signs to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Follow Partnach to the Olympic Ski Stadium in Garmisch until you reach the entrance to Partnachklamm. (Caution: Due to the G7 summit the Partnachklamm is closed from 24.06. to 28.06.22)
From here follow direction Wildenau, Hintergraseck to Elmau. Between Schloss Elmau and Alpengasthof Elmau take the path towards the two lakes Ferchensee / Lautersee. On hot summer days, these two lakes are perfect for cooling down before the last few kilometres. Now continue in the direction of Mittenwald and turn right in front of Hotel Drachenburg onto "In Kreuth" Straße until you reach the crossroads of Leutascher Straße. Now the road climbs steeply from the Höllkapelle to the Leutascher Spirit gorge. Continue to Gasthof Zur Brücke, turn left onto Wiesenweg to Leutascher Ache and follow this to the right from Tirol Camp, past the Flämenwandl climbing garden to Weidach. In Weidach pass the ErlebnisWelt Alpenbad Leutasch and continue in the direction of Klamm to the starting point at the Salzbach car park.
Beware, pasture cattle are to be expected again and again on the entire route, please keep your distance and cross the pasture area calmly and quickly.
