Stage 25

"Long alpine road to the finishing point"


Admittedly a rather long, though not at all difficult stage. Leaving from the Oberhütte we get off the forestry road after just 100 meters, branching off onto a trail to our left, which then constantly follows the banks of the Oberhüttenbach. We now drop about 500 vertical meters until we reach the Vögeialm, where food and refreshments are available.

This inn, along with the nearby Fallhausalm, is a great place to enjoy a short break. We continue along a narrow gravel road nearby the small "Forstau-stream", passing some mountain huts and farms. Approximately 2 km before Forstau, we turn right to the romantic path called "Bachweg" (with the nice kneipp path and interesting herb nature trail) - passing the Lourdes Chapel - directly heading to Forstau (approx. 13 km).
