A romantic, lonely cross-country ski run past the Ramsauer Lodenwalke with crisp climbs that demand a lot from the ambitious amateur athlete.

  • Drive on sight
  • Be considerate of others

Destination

Old Mill

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail starts at the Mühle junction at the turning point of the standard OST trail. Here you cross the street and then walk eastwards through the forest above the Rössinger Landesstraße. Passing the Fly Agaric snack bar you will reach the Silberkarklamm summer car park, cross the stream and walk on the other side via a loop around the farm vlg. Krin to the Rössingerhof. There you have reached the most easterly point and you are on your way back. After the vlg. Krin you then branch off to the left and walk down to the Lodenwalker and the Almstube from where it now goes steadily - and quite steeply - uphill, back to the old mill.
