Destination

Ennstalerhütte

Turn-by-turn directions

We walk from the parking lot at the train station or NP pavilion towards Hubertus chapel on a path until we reach a forest road. We follow this road past the Gstatterbodenbauer, a former hunting lodge which now houses holiday apartments (tip: especially romantic in autumn during the "deer rut"). Near the Kroissenalm we turn left towards the Niederscheibenalm. Finally we reach the bottom station of the material cable car. From here the path leads uphill, past the Butterbründl and you can already see the Ennstaler Hütte through the forest. A magnificent view awaits us on the terrace, on one side of the Buchstein massif and on the other side of the valley towards Erbsattel. We take the way back over the Bärensattel - enjoy the landscape at the Aussichtsbankerl - at times quite steeply downhill until we reach the forest road. Either we have parked a car here, then we have reached our destination, we hike on to the GH Schnabl at the Erbsattel road, which invites to stop for a break. Up to the station Großreifling we have to follow the Erbsattelstraße.
