Tour information

Start this hike at the Bruggbäckweg and follow Fieberbrunner Ache until the junction
to Baumoos. Make a right and cross the road and the train tracks. Continue Mag.
Eduard-Angererweg to its end. Along the forest your reach the forest road to Grander
Schupf. After a few meters turn left, a forest trail gets you down to Theresien Chapel.
Continue along a narrow gravel road, that includes bridges and steps, and climbs
gently all the way to the waterfall. The trail is close enough to the fall that you can feel
the spray on your cheeks. Past the waterfall there are several steps up to a trail that
climbs steadily in switchbacks to a forest road. Keep to your left and hike until the next
junction, make a right and walk to Dechantalm. Take a break and enjoy the marvelous
views of the Leoganger and Loferer Steinberge. Continue towards your right and down
through alpine pastures. Walk past Pointenhof inn and take the asphalt road down until
you get to an idyllic forest trail that brings you back to St. Johann in Tirol.
