Mountain hike to the Hohe Salve

The hike begins in the car park at the Hochbrixen gondola station.  We follow the road uphill to the fork at Ochsenweide, keep to the left and continue on the road as far as the Möllingerbauer (farm).  Then we turn left onto the dirt track and remain on this trail to Hochbrixen.  The hike continues to the Filzalmsee (lake), a very popular destination for young and old.   A steep ascent follows.  In the forest the mysterious Jordan chapel appears where the baptism of Jesus at the riven Jordan is depicted in images.  According to popular belief, the water from the spring holds a beneficial effect on the eyes.  The trail leads us through a short woodland area, on to the Kälbersalve and then to the Salvensee (reservoir).   The relatively steep ascent to the 1,829 m summit begins.  On arrival, we are rewarded with magnificent views, as well as culinary delights.  The return journey takes us once again down the summit slope to the Filzalmsee, keeping to the right on the woodland trail. Follow this trail as far as the Guggbauern (farm), then along the road descending into the valley.
