Description

Starting from the church, head left along the asphalt road (no. 56) past the Niederscheffau and Lindenhof farms until you reach Café Rosemarie. Then make a right turn towards Hintersteiner See lake (trail no. 43). This trail leads through the wild and romantic Seebachgraben ditch. At the end, a path on the left climbs through the forest and continues through a meadow. Once you reach the Grüblernhof farm, follow the road to the left in the direction of Seestüberl/Hintersteiner See. At the Seestüberl restaurant, turn right onto an uphill path (no. 45a) that merges back into a forest road (no. 45). Follow this until you reach the Walleralm, where you should keep right and follow the WKS (Wilder-Kaiser-Steig trail no. 823) towards the Steiner-Hochalm. Continue along the WKS until you reach the Kaiser-Hochalm Alpine pasture. Stay on the WKS until the Wegscheid-Hochalm fork, where you begin your descent to the Jägerwirt inn (trail no. 826) and then continue back to the village.
