The last part of the stage tour, which is still connected with steep ascents and descents. This stage leads us further into the valley. Here we find ourselves in a very busy area with several hiking trails.

Destination

Steinitzenalm

Turn-by-turn directions

We go downhill from the Gasthof Steinerhaus and continue along path 618. We walk over big roots and uneven ground until to our right, below the Kimpflingsattel, there is a turnoff to the Notgasse of path 618. Here we have to take a close look, as the turnoff is signposted, but still easy to miss. From here we walk about 30 minutes to the actual Notgasse, an impressive gorge with up to 60m high rock faces and historical rock carvings. We follow the path through the gorge until we reach a forest path that we follow up to Brandalm. We continue along the path past the Viehbergalm into the forest - this section is also called "Bettlersteig". The path leading on is marked as a Dachstein circular hiking trail and leads over the summit of Hochmühleck and over the Goseritzalm always downhill through the forest to the Steinitzenalm.

Tip: At the Viehbergalm, traditional alpine huts invite you to stop for a bite to eat. The Ritzingerhütte also offers overnight accommodation.

Eigentlich eine schöne und einfache (wenn auch lange) Tour, es gibt nur einen Schönheitsfehler: der hinterlegte GPS Track zwischen Viehbergalm und Hochmühleck führt in die absolute Wildnis. Es gibt überhaupt keine Markierungen und der einzige Steig der zwischendurch manchmal erkennbar ist, ist ein Viehtriebsteig. Ich habe hier leider irgendwo eine Markierung übersehen und bin vom Weg abgekommen. Wollte mich dann per GPS auf den vermeintlich richtigen Weg zurückbegeben. Das hat mich auf dieser ohnehin schon langen Etappe sicherlich eine Stunde gekostet ... Der richtige Weg verläuft hier etliche 100m weiter östlich vom GPS Track (ie auf der oben eingebunden Karte die strichlierte Line rechts vom Track) Daher Augen auf und hier NICHT dem GPS Track folgen ...

Die Brunnerhütte ist nicht bewirtschaftet, angeblich schon seit Jahren nicht
