The Parcines (Partschinser) Waalweg Trail, Golderskofel Peak, and a waterfall


From Parcines (Partschins) at 637 metres, stay with signs for the Sagenweg (Trail of Legends), northeast along Trail No. 7A, until you reach Graswegerkeller Tavern; turn left there, and follow the Partschinser Waalweg Trail, nearly flat, westward until you reach the Sagenweg Trail. From that point on, it is a steeper footpath and branches off to the mountain side. Stay on this trail through the bushes up to Tablander Straße: take this road for a bit, up to Golderskofel and then to Ebnerhof Farm at 1,018 m; 1.5 hours from Parcines (Partschins). From there, continue under the farm along the marked Sagenweg Trail through forested slopes and meadows, partly flat, partly easily up and down, west to Birkenwald Tavern. Cross the bridge and take the footpath, following signs for “Wasserfall” until you come to the Wasserfall Inn (1,073 m; also Wasserfallhof Farm; about 2 hours from Parcines). From there, a short path leads to a viewing platform very close to the waterfall. Descent: From Wasserfall Tavern, take the footpath back down to Birkenwald Tavern; continue along the marked footpath through the woods down to some houses (near the start of the Waal water channel, Saltenstein), past the Salten Inn, and continuing on the road down to Parcines; just under an hour from the waterfall.
