Stage 20

"Down the ski slopes"


The Flying Mozart lift (runs in summer) gives us an easy way to reach our starting point.
This hike takes us primarily across the ski area, past numerous mountain inns including the Latschenhof, Jandlalm and the Waldgasthof. From the Latschenhof there is also an opportunity to ride the lift back down to the valley.

Time and time again, we will cross the supply road which cuts across the ski slopes. Once we reach the Waldgasthof, we will continue along the forest’s edge down to the Neureithweg, following this for around 200 meters before making a left into a closed high forest. The footpath makes a moderately steep descent through the forest, until we come to the forest path shortly before the town of Flachau. This will now take us to the Griessenkarweg, which will, in its turn, bring us into Flachau.
