Tour description:

The Winklmoos-Alm gondola takes you from Seegatterl to the starting point of the tour, the Winklmoos-Alm plateau. Directly at the mountain station, you start hiking along the flattened path in the direction of teh Heutal valley, the hike to the Wildalm is signposted throughout.

After 200 meters turn left behind the Winklmoos water supply in the direction of the high moor. Enjoy the view of the Loferer and Leoganger Steinberge mountains, as well as up to the Dürrnbachhorn peak, before you dive into the majestic winter forest. You cross the border to Austria and continue to follow the path in the direction of the Heutal valley. When you turn right (Möserer Stube circular trail), stay straight on the path.

Shortly thereafter, the ascent to the Wildalm branches off to the left. Up to here the path was flat, now it becomes noticeably steeper. The peace and quiet in the wintry mountain forest rewards you for every meter you climb. Shortly before the Wildalm, the forest thins out and you can see the Heutal ski area. After crossing a drag lift, you can treat yourself to a long rest in the Wildalm hut, before you return to the Winklmoos-Alm via the same route. There are other places to stop for refreshments around the starting point.
