Am Ende des Johnsbachtales befindet sich der Ausgangspunkt für eine gemütliche Schneeschuh Almwanderung .

Bereits zu Beginn dieser gemütlichen Familienwanderung warten eindrucksvolle Fotomotive entlang der atemberaubenden Schlucht in der Teufelsklamm, die im Winter ab der Ebneralm auch als Rodelbahn dient. Und von zahlreichen Stellen entlang des Weges kann man wunderschöne Ausblicke ins Johnsbachtal genießen.

Good tour planning (route, avalanche situation report, weather report, weather stations).

Complete equipment
