 We start the beautiful mountain tour near the middle station of the ski lifts in Hinterstoder at around 1.400m above sea level. Who is not afraid of heights should not go this tour, as you haveo master a short, difficult section before the summit. This place is secured with a rope, but it goes down pretty steeply on both sides. Everyone can hike up to 2.000m on the hill – Schafkögel, because the path to it is very easy on the trails Höss Round and Höss Alpin Round.

You can reach the starting point either by car via the Höss mountain tollroad or by cable car. At the beginning of this hike, we go on a gravel road about 4 km past the lake Hutterersee and 450 altimeters uphill to the Höss Mountain Station. The second lift is also in operation in summer. Here you could shorten the hike a bit. Right after the mountain inn we reach the very wonderful lake - Schafkogelsee. In the crystal clear waters reflect the highest mountains of the Dead Mountains. Here you have just insert a first break, enjoy the view and walk the 650m long long walk around the lake. From the lake Schafkogelsee we now follow the signposted, easy trail Höss Alpine Trail up to the Schafkögel. Thus we achieve without any difficulty after 6,8 km the 2000 mark and from the observation tower you’ll have a wonderful panorama.

The 1.1 km long climb to the summit – Schrocken have almost exactly 300 altimeters. The trail is how it should be for a mountain hike very steep and rocky. After 8.4 km and 80 altimeters below the summit, we first deal secured the rope section. To do this you should always be very carefully. 200m further we are right at the 2.281m high Schrocken and enjoy the magnificent panoramic view to Upper Austria and Styria.

On the Schrocken begins a beautiful ridge hike with only a few altimeters above the summits Kaminspitz 2.322m, Kreuzspitze 2.327m and Hochmölbing 2.336m. On the way back we stop at the mountain inn Höss for a hearty snack. So we dont always have to go back the same way, we go on the trail Hutterer pastures back to the starting point.
