Old, but stately
The quaint farmhouses are partly still covered with shingles and have the typical bell tower

In St. Johann in Ahrn (1020 m) first through the village to its eastern edge (festival hall, various signposts) and from there on the hardly used farm access road with only a moderate ascent mostly through meadows up to the Gruberhof (1180 m, snack station; from St. Johann 0:45 h). From there the road leads up to other farms and after a forest belt out to the Sandbichlerhof, the highest farm on the Gföllberg (1463 m; no restaurant); here from St. Johann approx. 1:30 h. The descent is best done on the road again; if snow conditions permit, the footpath can also be followed in parts. Walking time for the descent: a good 1:00 hrs.
