will unfortunately disappear again from the weather maps tomorrow! At least it will bring us one day of nice weather: it will be bright today, winds will be weak at all altitudes and temperatures will be mild.

Tendency

Under the influence of foehn winds, Thursday will be warm. On Friday, the foehn will die. As a consequence, the weather will become humid and cool; we will even get plenty of new snow at medium and higher altitudes.

From the car park, we hike across the bridge over the Senderbach stream and then follow the forest road for a short distance. A few metres after the first left-hand bend, we turn right to follow the shortcut along a wide, cleared path through the trees, crossing the road once more and continuing up to the private Salfains Alm mountain hut (1,738 m). From the hut, we hike diagonally uphill to a small wooden cross, before continuing west through a small bowl and then out to the right onto the wide plateau that is home to the romantic Schönangerl/Salfainssee biotope and the Salfains hill (2,000 m). If you hike north for about 300 m from there, you will come to a small summit cross located just below the hill with magnificent views of the Inn Valley.


Descent: hike back along the ascent route as described above or take the route via the Kemater Alm mountain hut, where you can stop for a break and a bite to eat.
