This high-altitude trail boasts stunning views, including 360-degree panoramic views from the summit of the surrounding Tyrolean mountains.
This walk begins at the car park at St Sigmund (payment by coin necessary). The first section of the route goes along the toboggan run (forest path) to the Gleirschbrücke bridge, before continuing along the footpath through the winter forest to the Gleirschalm alpine hut. This hut has a sunny terrace and a small yet cosy interior. Tyrolean delicacies are served. This winter walk is also possible with children, and the descent is perfect for tobogganing.
Leave the Lehnbach car park through the gate, head straight on to the first fork and follow the signs towards Wildermieming. At the golf course, the route rejoins the little-used road. Hikers go through Brentesiedlung and reach Wildermieming after the Pestkapelle (Chapel of the Black Death). After the Rochuskapelle, the route loops upwards towards the car park (many hiking routes begin here) and back down towards Wildermieming after passing one of Austrian TV's most famous houses, the Bergdoktorhaus. The route continues through Wildermieming and via the Einsiedlerhöfe back towards Affenhausen. After crossing the road and passing the Afrakapelle, the south side of the road takes you through the forest and past the Nothelferkapelle and Kirche St. Georg. The final stretch takes you through Obermieming and back to the starting point.

From the bottom lift station of the Muttereralm, a maintained and very scenic hiking trail and prepared toboggan run (from the mid-station) lead you up the mountain through alpine meadows and forests.

This route is perfect for the whole family, but remember to bring your good walking shoes!
