No way too far: the Adlerweg track
Hiking in Tyrol has its own name: the Adlerweg. This long-distance hiking trail covers the entire region and tells the charming story of a place with many corners and edges:
- Stage 91: Experience a beautiful trail leading from the Stripsenjochushaus cabin over the Feldalmsattel pasture. Here, you will cross high alpine pastures on the way to our viewing point atop the Heuberg Mountain. From there, the trail leads us over the Gwirchtalm pastures and back to Lake Walchsee.
- Stage 92: From Lake Walchsee, this hike takes us past the Schwemm moor (Northern Tyrol’s largest surviving moorland) and on to the Brennkopf Mountain via a turnoff located shortly before the Moarhof golf course. From there, we continue past the Wanderberghuette cabin and the Ackernalm pasture to the Prienerhuette cabin. After that, the trail leads us to the Karalm pasture via the Breitenstein pass. From there we walk back down the valley to the Edenalm pasture and to our final destination, the village of Koessen.
