The tour

From Gasthof Steiner on the Stoderzinken, we follow the dirt road to the Brünnerhütte.  A beautiful larch forest interspersed with pine surrounds narrow path No. 618, which we follow for the better part of an hour through the Brandner Urwald.  In the valley bottom below the Kimpflingsattel, we branch off to the Notgasse. We need to pay close attention, since the markings are easy to miss.  Big clearings, such as the Wiesmahd, occasionally interrupt the dense forest.  It was here, in former times, that charcoal was produced.  In the narrow, some 550 m long and up to 30 m wide rocky canyon of the Notgasse, it is not rare for snow to be on the ground until well into summer.   Because of the rock drawings discovered there, the Notgasse is protected as an important cultural site – so please take that into consideration!  After this ancient trade route, we come to a new forestry lane, which we follow to the Brandalm – from there now along the Bettlersteig trail to a beautiful hut village at the Viehbergalm.
Following trail No. 28, we descend about 300 m as far as the Rahnstube, where we again meet up with that forestry lane from the Brandalm.  We continue through flat terrain until a beautiful path through the impressive Öfen brings us to Gröbming Winkl.
