In the footsteps of the ancestors
The Kalksteinjöchl is a crossing into the Austrian East Tyrol. In the past, the Jöcher were never borders, but connections. How often might cattle have been driven over the Kalksteinjöchl?

Tour by Raimund Gietl. From the car park, follow the toboggan run or the more or less parallel forest path (Mark. Talblickweg, 48) almost level to the southeast. Shortly below the start of the toboggan run, a forest path branches off to the right (signpost Tschernied-Alm, Kalksteinjöchl, 48), which leads largely through forest up to the Tschernied-Alm. You can take a shortcut if you climb up to the left (southeast) at a small power station, where a bridge crosses the Tscharniedbach stream, before the bridge. There, the trail climbs along the Tscharniedbach stream to the open meadows below the alpine pasture. From the alpine pastures, climb steeply up the right valley slope until you reach the flatter terrain. There the trail only rises slightly to the Kalksteinjöchl (also known as „Steiges Heache“ by the locals). Descent from Kalksteinjöchl: Same as ascent.
