Route: Scharnitz – Birzelkapelle – Alpine House Karwendelhaus - Scharnitz

Starting at the information office, walk left along the road, via Inrain to the Isar bridge. Turn left here
and a short uphill walk takes you past Guesthouse Helga to the turnoff to the Birzelkapelle chapel.
Follow this lovely track, steep in places, to the chapel. Once past the chapel you join the forest
track to the Karwendeltal valley. Just stay on the track until the track becomes steeper and winds up past the high pastures on the last section to the Karwendelhaus. Return to Scharnitz on the same forest track through the Karwendeltal valley.
