This hike begins in Angertal – one of the four blind valleys in Gastein Valley.
Time on trail: appx. 5 hours, gain 3 hours: 700 m/ loss 3 hours: 700 m
After crossing the Lafenbach, you will follow a forest trail via the Wolfstall and out towards the Gadaunerer Hochalmen. The dense spruce forest provides plenty of welcome shade, especially on hot summer days. Once above the tree line, you will come to the Gadaunerer Hochalmen, an alpine grazing area which, due to the numerous huts there, almost seems like a small mountain hamlet. The hike back down will take you across lush alpine meadows, then via the Lafenmahder towards Angertal. As you make your way, you will clearly be able to see how the steep mountain meadows at over 1600 m above sea level are still mowed and used as a source of hay by the local mountain farmers.
