Route: Scharnitz – Gleirschhöhe – Valley Gleirschtal – Kristenalm – Möslalm - Scharnitz

Starting at the information office, cross the bridge over the river Isar and turn left before the church. Follow the road Hinterautalstraße, past the hikers’ car park towards inn Gasthof Wiesenhof. Continue on to Gleirschhöhe where you then take the forest track to your right towards the Gleirschtal valley. Before the hut Amtsäge, take the turnoff to your right. A walk of about an hour takes you up to the hut Kristenalm. If you go straight ahead rather than taking the turnoff to your right, you come to the hut Amtsäge, the forest track to the right of which takes you, in about 15 minutes, to the hut Möslalm. You can either return to Scharnitz by the same route or you can hike back through the rugged, picturesque Gleirschklamm gorge (only for experienced walkers).
