5. Alpine pasture tour with 5 alpine huts
Begin at the summit station of the Alpendorf gondola (operates from Jun to October). Follow the narrow road leading away from the summit station, past the Buchau Hütte Alpine Hut to the Gernkogel Alm Alpine Hut. From there circumnavigate the wooded knoll of Gernkogel Mountain passing it on the right. Follow the wide saddle towards Sonntagskogel Mountain until you come to the turn-off for the "Wagrainer Höhenweg” (Wagrain high alpine trail) heading towards the Maurach Alm Alpine Hut. From here you continue your journey to the interior of the valley on a path that leads mostly downhill past the Maurach Alm, Muggenfeld Alm (Rothof Alm), the Unterwald Alm and the Karsegg Alm Alpine Huts to the Sonneck Bridge.
Taxi transfers are available for the return trip to Alpendorf. However, should you prefer to walk some of the way, you can take the service road down to the Sonneck Bridge (about 1 hour), take the Grossarl Hikers’ Bus into the town of Grossarl and transfer to the public bus #540 (bus stop “Grossarl Town Centre") for the ride back to Alpendorf.
