Eagle Walk Stage 11: Karwendelhaus Lodge - Hallerangerhaus Lodge

Eagle Walk Stage 11: Karwendelhaus Lodge - Hallerangerhaus Lodge

Excelsior! On this walk, you will find yourself in a world almost as far removed as you can get from the forested valleys below. It's steep, brushy, challenging and technical. It’s a long journey at about 14 kilometres, and more than mere time is required for this trek; you'll also need excellent endurance and a good cardiovascular system. The trail climbs steeply from Karwendelhaus Lodge to the high ridgeline. Once aloft on those airy plains, you'll be in a true Alpine environment. The scramble route starts at Schlauchkar Cirque. Here, the trail becomes increasingly rock-laden, slowing your pace as you clamber up and around talus and scree slopes and you'll have to cross a snowfield. Beyond Birkkar Refuge, the final push to the summit of Birkkarspitze is an exposed scramble that contours along the western ridge of the mountain, assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. A knee-jarring descent takes you into lovely Hinterautal Valley, where you can catch your breath while ambling along a gently graded forest road. Parallel to the cascading Lafatscherbach Brook, the trail heads to Lafatscher Niederleger with its quaint Alpine Pasture Hut. Soon after, it branches off towards Hallerangerhaus Lodge and Alpine Pasture Hut, the destination end of what is often called the Eagle Walk's ‘hardest mile’.

Eagle Walk Stage 19: Anhalter Hütte - Hanauer Hütte

Eagle Walk Stage 19: Anhalter Hütte - Hanauer Hütte

Pfafflar is not a word that comes easily off the tongue, but here, the wow factor far exceeds the “ow” factor – this walk delivers much reward for the effort. The exposed and rugged trail from Anhalter Hütte Hut to Steinjöchl Col is assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. From the col, it’s a steep descent to Hahntennjoch Saddle. Gorgeous scenery awaits eager hikers in remote Pfafflar Valley, passing picture-postcard villages en route to Angerletal Valley and to the destination end of this walk, Hanauer Hütte Hut. With most of the 38 square kilometre Muttekopf Nature Preserve area lying above treeline, you'll be in a true Alpine environment. And all of that Alpine glory can be yours for a mere song-and only 750 metres of elevation gain. Don’t miss to turn your focus from the beautiful scenery to your feet as rare, exotic and imperilled Alpine wildflowers and plants can be found here.

Eagle Walk Stage 20: Hanauer Hütte - Württemberger Haus

Eagle Walk Stage 20: Hanauer Hütte - Württemberger Haus

Once aloft on those airy plains between Inn and Lech Rivers, you'll be in a true Alpine environment. You can expect to have very few encounters on this trail so if you enjoy solitude, and a good work-out this trail is for you. This hike is famous for its sharp ridges and the feeling of remoteness its rugged terrain offers. However, you’ll need to turn your focus from the scenery to your feet as you tackle vigorously steep climbs, scree and talus slopes, large boulders and cliffs assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. You’ll gain East/Back Dremelscharte Notch and walk past a necklace of sparkling Alpine lakes, adorning bold mountain faces. For many hikers this walk is far enough, contentment has already set in. Adventurous souls who are up for the extra effort can take the detour for Schlenkersee Lake, an aquatic gem wrapped in gorgeous scenery just below East Dremelscharte Notch.

Eagle Walk Stage 17: Ehrwald - Lorea Hütte

Picturesque Alpine lakes, spectacular views, knife-edged mountains, and a dizzying array of wildflowers and wonderful groves – this hike is simply gorgeous and a pure nature experience. In Ehrwald follow Moosweg (literally, ‘Moss Trail‘) to Lermoos. Ride Grubigstein Gondola up to Grubigalm Alpine Pasture Hut (elev. 1,720m), effortlessly gaining vertical feet. You’re at the heart of scenic Tiroler Zugspitz Arena here and a gentle stroll up and down dwarf pine fields and old-growth forest takes you to Fern Pass Road. Beautiful Blindsee Lake can be seen glinting through the trees. Follow the ancient Via Claudia Augusta Road, the historic Roman Road that was built 15 BC and bears witness to the fascinating building achievements of the Romans. At Fernstein Castle, a whole new world opens, the Mieming Plateau & Fernpass Lakes Area, a gorgeous and sunny upland plateau epitomizing scenic beauty. But don't be fooled while you contemplate the serenity of nature, it’s still a long journey to Lorea Hütte Hut, the shelter that is your destination. Climbing steeply, the trail furiously works its way up there.

Eagle Walk Stage 04: Kufstein - Gasthof Schlossblick

Eagle Walk Stage 04: Kufstein - Gasthof Schlossblick

When leaving the charming historic small town behind, you might still be able to hear the sound of the “Heroes’ Organ” with its 4,948 perfectly tuned pipes – the world’s largest outdoor organ. First, take the train to Unterlangkampfen where the trail starts right above the church. Follow a steady climb through old-growth forest to gain elevation once again. Then take on a narrow path from Höhlensteinhaus Lodge to Köglhörndl, where you will enjoy magnificent views of Inntal Valley. The path continues to Hundsalmjoch Col at 1,637 metres altitude. Close to Alpengasthof Buchacker (unwardened mountain hut) you will find Hundalm Ice Cave, at an elevation of 1,520 metres. Descend to the underground world directly from the top of the mountain. Almost like Plato’s allegory of the cave!

Eagle Walk Stage 22: Memminger Hütte - Ansbacher Hütte

Eagle Walk Stage 22: Memminger Hütte - Ansbacher Hütte

Gullies resemble large ditches, small valleys or narrow chasms, incised into the rock by the cascading waters of thundering creeks and brooks. On this walk, you’ll encounter lots of them, along with notches, crests, ridges, steep flanks and scree slopes that will keep your pace in check. The rewards are great--outstanding views, clean air, and relatively few people to share the trail with--but be prepared to work for every view you get. Make your way down into Parseiertal Valley on steep and exposed tussock slopes, before climbing up to Langkar Cirque and Grießlscharte Notch. Beyond Winterjöchl Col, the trail passes behind Stierkopf Mountain, and resumes its climb up Kopfscharte Notch across rugged terrain. From the notch, head south towards Ansbacher Hut on wide open tussock slopes, drinking fine views and savouring precious Alpine moments on your way.
