Winter Hiking - Schwarzachtal - Gerlos Gmünd

Take the romantic forest path along Gerlosbach stream from Gerlos to Gmnd heading towards Hotel Krller. Here you cross the road and turn right to Hotel Almhof. Passing the single track road at Hotel Almhof, take a gentle stroll onwards to the fork at "Seemeile". A little care is needed when descending to the dam wall (supportive shoes!). After the short tunnel gallery, take the path to the right (beside the main road) to Gasthof Khle Rast. Here you walk through a narrow belt of forest and then, at last, slowly uphill: pass along the narrow, romantic valley along the Schwarzach River for about one hour until you see a place to stop at almost 1,400 m at a snack-bar. Alternatively you can turn left after the tunnel and walk along the banks of the Gmnd reservoir. Once back in Gmnd you cross the footbridge to the western riding stables, next to which the path rises again to Hotel Krller.
