A short walk, suitable for prams, with starting point at the valley terminal of the Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car. Along forest roads you walk through the forest in the area above the valley terminal. Two times you also make your way across two mountain meadows (in the winter these are ski pistes), from where you have a nice view to Rohrmoos.

Safety information

Changes in weather patterns, quick falls in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow are some of the dangers that can be encountered on a hiking tour. Hosts of alpine huts and mountain refuges have a lot of experience in the mountains and can give good advice about weather and the trails. Poor equipment, overestimation of one's own capabilities, carelessness, poor personal constitution and/or wrong judgement  can lead to critical situations. In case of thunderstorms: avoid summits, ridges and steel ropes.

GPS data and orienteering

Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.

In an emergency please call:

  • 140 - for Alpine emergencies (all over Austria)
  • 112 - European GSM emergency number

Destination

Hiking trail head, Hochwurzen valley terminal

Turn-by-turn directions

From the hiking trail head you pass by the sport shop "Schi Lenz" and take the forest road. You follow this dirt road for about 700 m to the turn-off of Karbach Walk. You continue on a forest road and then make your way across a meadow (which is a ski piste in winter). You continue on the same road, cross another "ski piste" and reach the trail junction with the fairy-tale trail. Here you make a right and head back to your starting point.
