Route: information office Scharnitz – Track Isarsteig – Path Nederweg – Gorge Gleirschklamm - Scharnitz

Not suitable for pushchairs or bikes! Starting at the information office Scharnitz, cross the bridge over the river Isar and turn left before the church. Follow the Hinterautalstraße past the hikers’ car park as far as House Taxi Mair. Turn right there and follow the road to a slightly uphill forest track. After approx. 15 minutes you reach the turnoff to the Isarsteig track. At the end of the track Isarsteig you join the Nederweg path. Go past the Scharnitzer Alm hut and continue until you come to the entrance to the Gleirschklamm gorge. Only surefooted and experienced walkers should follow the narrow track that takes you through the rugged, picturesque gorge to the Isar valley forest track where you can either continue towards the valley to the Möslalm or Kristenalm huts. Alternatively, you can follow the forest track on the left back to Scharnitz.
