Turn-by-turn directions

From the parish church in Gais the trail goes between houses along in a northerly direction up to the forest (trail no. 2). Continue through the forest in a southerly direction until you reach the Kehlburg, which sits at a height of 1,187 m at the top of a narrow forested hill and presents itself only as a ruin today. Continue on (trail K) to the beautifully situated huts of Amaten, there are several places to stop and rest. Through the steep forest slopes, head in a north-westerly direction (trail no. 5) to the Bärentalhof and across the fields back to Gais.
