Hikes for every level

Steinfeldspitze 2,344 m – ca. 810 metres of altitude

Total trail length: 7 m. Route: Oberzauchensee (ca. 1,600 m) – Steinfeldspitze (2,344 m) – Großer Bärenstaffl (ca. 2,135 m) – Stubhöhe – Oberzauchensee Alm (1,556 m). Requirements: mountain tour with some wire ropes, surefootedness is required, beautiful panorama mountain; we only came upon the marked trail shortly below the Schwarzkopf which leads to the Gamskogelhütte and then to the Steinfeldspitze. We marched cross-country (partly on cattle tracks) to the summit.

Bärenstaffl 2,140 m

The transgression of the Steinfeldspitze remains reserved to the skilled hikers with alpine experience and is a pleasure for those who are surefooted and free from giddiness. The summit on the east side is a little bit easier, the Große Bärenstaffl (ca. 2,140 m). In the opposite direction the tour is considered easier and can be shortened via the Gamskogelbahn cable car, it is nevertheless a hard tour!
