Tour description

This medium-difficulty hiking tour from Mittenwald to the Hochlandhütte lodge begins at the northern hiking parking lot (near the barracks) off the main road 2. From here, first walk in a southerly direction to the bridge, then turn to the left onto a narrow hiking trail. This will lead you steadily up along the Gassellahnbach river, until you reach a forest road at the upper end of the trail. Hikers will follow the forest road until it leads to a bridge which crosses the Gassellahnbach river. After the bridge, the gravel road leads up a short distance further, and soon the switchbacks begin, which lead to the Oberen Kälberalm alpine hut and the idyllic Hochlandhütte lodge, at 1,632 meters.
