Safety information

Trotz sorgfältigster Recherche kann es bei den Strecken zu unvorhergesehenen kurz-, mittel- oder gar längerfristigen Sperren (z.B. wegen forstlicher Sperrgebiete durch Grundbesitzer) kommen. Von uns empfohlene Parkmöglichkeiten können teils privat oder gebührenpflichtig sein – bitte auf die Beschilderung vor Ort achten. Manche Wege können abschnittsweise oder zur Gänze durch gebührenpflichtige Betriebe/Gebiete führen (z.B. Naturparke oder Klammen). Darauf wird aber in der Regel explizit in der Beschreibung hingewiesen. Alle Angaben erfolgen ohne Gewähr und die Benützung der Wege erfolgt auf eigene Gefahr. Etwaige Wegesperren sowie Hinweise von Jagd- und Grundbesitzer sind zu beachten.

Destination

At the Jausenstation Reischer

Turn-by-turn directions

The route through the gorge is well established, with several steps and walkways, and is marked with blue signs all along the way. After approx. 20 minutes, we will reach a point where we can choose whether to stay on this route, or to switch to the Rudolf Decker Steig (red route). Climb up vertical ladders to reach the Türkenloch cave. This is not recommended if you don't have a head for heights (danger of falling rocks). We will continue towards the Almesbrunnberg (green route). From the forest road, our next destination is the mountain lodge. After approx. 1 km, we will follow a forest and meadow route up towards the Almesbrunnberg (the peaks merge). The descent is also marked in green. We will soon leave the forest road and turn left onto a forest path, until we reach the edge of the forest. Now we will follow the yellow route to the Gasthaus Jagasitz inn. From there, it is a 2 km walk back to the starting point.
