Tour information

From the centre of Erpfendorf, walk in the direction of the national road. After crossing the road, keep left - past the Steinbacher company - until you reach the river Großache. Turn right and follow the hiking trail to the  bridge. Cross it and hike from the hamlet of Brugging up via the Krepperalm to the Prostalm. A steep trail leads to the Krepperalm and then via Strüblalm (925 m) to the Prostalm (1180 m).

From there it is another 20 minutes to the Prostkogel (1244 m). This detour is worth it, as you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the mountain peaks all around. On the Prostkogel you will also find a historic air traffic control.

From the Prostkogel, the hike leads back along the same path until the Strüblalm. There keep to the right and hike down to the hamlet of Weng/Prost. Here you change to the hiking trail at the Achendamm and hike back to the centre of Erpfendorf.

Make a detour to the "Teufelsgasse".
