Circular hike in the Hirzer Region

General description

Family-friendly, scenically rewarding route via numerous serviced mountain huts, that welcome hikers wanting to linger over a snack and a drink. A lovely varied hike for those who love quieter trails.

Route description

The first part of this route is via cable car from Saltusio to Klammeben. Here, the circular hike on trail no. 40, which is also popular with children, leads after a short downhill / uphill section to the Hirzerhütte mountain inn. Next the trail leads across the meadows downhill again to the idyllic location of the Gompm Alm mountain hut (temporarily closed). The route continues along an almost flat section to the Grube inn. Here it is possible to descend to either Oberkirn or Prenn.

As an alternative, proceed via Scena to Verdins, take the cable car and then the chair lift Talle-Grube. From the mountain station it takes about 30 minutes to reach Klammeben by foot.
