Route: Scharnitz information office – Road Hinterautalstraße – Path Karwendelklammsteig - Scharnitz information office

Starting at the information office, cross the bridge, turn left before the church and follow the road Hinterautalstraße as far as the Gaugg quarry after which a small steep track goes up to the left. Follow this track along the Karwendel Gorge until you reach the forest path towards the Karwendel mountain range. From here you can either continue on to the Birzelkapelle chapel, or you can walk back down the road to Scharnitz. Another option would be to walk to the inn Gasthof Wiesenhof via the path Karwendelsteg and back to Scharnitz from there. Not suitable for pushchairs.
