Route: Solsteinhaus - Eppzirler Scharte - Eppzirler Alm - Giessenbachklamm gorge - Scharnitz - Leutasch/Ahrn

Route description:

From the Solsteinhaus, head in a northwesterly direction through scree and rocks to the Eppzirler Scharte and further down to the Eppzirler Alm. Now a wide road leads leisurely falling out of the Eppzirler valley and further along the Giessenbach, through the wildly romantic Giessenbachklamm gorge out of the valley. From the village of Giessenbach, the trail continues west of the railroad tracks and the main road to Scharnitz, but soon turns left in the direction of Hoher Sattel. Beyond the Hoher Sattel, the trail descends steeply on a forest path to Leutasch/Ahrn.

Highlights:
