Tour description:

From Seegatterl car park we walk along the former campsite, then over a bridge and uphill on the alpine path to the right. Our path always climbs steadily through the forest, several shrines remind us of fatal accidents during the dangerous removal of wood on this path.

We continue to the Hahnfilze service hut, before which we turn left. Referred to a footbridge, we soon reach the Winklmoos-Alm. The settlement invites us to eat and drink (several restaurants), to look and walk, but also to visit: Alm chapel, beautiful field cross, church of St. Johann im Gebirg.

For mountain hikers, the Winklmoos Alm is the starting point for many day tours, some of which are extensive. The circular route back to Seegattterl leads past the Rosshütte on a forest path, initially flat, into the Schwarzlofer valley. Again flat to the starting point.

Note: mountain bikers also move on parts of the route. Good shoes are recommended
