Physical condition: Strength for ca. 60 minutes hiking uphill with ca. 300 metres ascent. Total hiking time ca. 100 minutes.

In brief:  The ascent to the Wildalm follows an asphalt road at first and later a forest road. After 600 metres turn right and the last kilometre follows a well-maintained hiking path to the destination on the alm. The way back follows the same route. Refreshments available at the Jausenstation Wildalm, the highest point on the tour, or in Heutal.

Tour highlights: The Wildalm with the Jausenstation as well as the alm huts and cows.

The tour is part of “Hiking with Kids” in the Salzburger Saalachtal. The duration and difficulty are suitable for children/families.
