Salzburger Almenweg: Stage 5
"From mountain to lake"
The Almenweg can be reached by hiking up from Weng. Making a modest climb along the supply road, past the Hochploin farmstead, after approx. one kilometer a freshly paved path (posted as a private path) branches off and down to a farm.
It makes a right at the bottom and continues up a forest path. After approx. 250 m, a footpath branches off to the left. After a short distance this leaves the forest, passes a farm hut and continues up to the Meislsteinalm (highest point of this stage).
Now comes a supply road, taking us past the Hackeralm, in long switchbacks down to the idyllically situated Böndlsee (where you can swim, if you wish). At the last curve prior to the path joining the road to Weng, a footpath branches off and almost circles the lake.
The route takes us past the entrance for the outdoor pool and past Gasthof Seeblick to the road for Goldegg-Weng – or we take a right and make our way down to Lend.
In this case, we climb slightly uphill on our way to the Schlacher. After another 300 m, we continue along a road, narrow in parts, steadily downhill to Lend and the railway station.
