A remote mountain pasture with a little chapel in the Zillertal Alps

Directions


The trail, which at first is still paved but soon turns into a dirt road, rises quickly. After passing Althausalm alpine pasture (1,448 m) on the right, the road leads through an idyllic forest and keeps gaining in altitude. There are several junctions; always stay on the broad trail. You'll reach the tree line  after a two-hour, challenging ascent. The Malga Tratten (Tratteralm) alpine farm (1,853 m) is a good place to stop for a bite to eat. The trail continues across the creek, and the final section of the hike offers splendid views of the spectacular Zillertal Alps and leads past Malga Reichenegg (Reichenegg Alm) and Kirchler Göge to the final destination, Malga Göge (Gögealm)  at 2,027 metres: this alpine pasture is situated in a picturesque circular valley and features a tavern, a little church and a playground. The way back down is the same and takes around 1 1/2 hrs. Appearance of the trail: dirt road, continually rising. Buggy should be very strong, with 3 or 4 wheels.
