Route: Scharnitz / information centre – Hinterautalstraße – Teufelslochklamm – Scharnitz / information centre

Starting at the information centre at the car park Länd (P2), 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 very steeply in places (sometimes the track is very narrow), 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 Hochwald, 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.
