Route: Leutasch / Lehner - Puittal Valley – Scharnitzjoch – Gehrenspitze - return on the same path or direction Wangalm/Wettersteinhütte

Starting just after the hamlet of Lehner, cross the Puitbach stream and follow the path on the left to Puitegg. Continue through the Puittal valley to Scharnitzjoch (3 hours walk to Scharnitzjoch). Following the markings, pass the Erinnerungshütte Alpine hut (no refreshments available) and then on to the little church on the Gehrenspitze summit where you can leave your mark in the summit log-book beside the summit cross. With a bit of luck, a trained eye will be able to spot chamois or marmots here in their natural habitat. There are two alternatives for climbing back down – you can either go back the same route you came, or you can walk from Scharnitzjoch back to Leutasch via the Wangalm and the Wettersteinhütte Alpine huts (from the Gaistal you could take the bus back to your starting point or to the center of Leutasch). This is a beautiful hike offering a stunning panoramic view on the Olympiaregion Seefeld.
