Hochalm hike

Description

Starting from the church, head left along the asphalt road (no. 56) past the Niederscheffau and Lindenhof farms to Hintersteiner See via Seebachgraben (trail no. 43). This trail leads beside a creek through the Seebachgraben gorge. 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 to Hintersteiner See. At the Seestüberl restaurant, turn right and follow the path no. 45a + no. 45 until you reach the Walleralm. After the Walleralm, keep right and follow the WKS (Wilder-Kaiser-Steig trail no. 823) towards the Steiner Hochalm and continue along the WKS until you reach the Kaiser-Hochalm. Stay on the WKS until the Wegscheid-Hochalm, where you begin your descent to the Jägerwirt inn (trail no. 826) and then continue back to the village.
