Bike & hike tour to the Gämskragen summit in Niedernsill

31.07.2020

We start our mountain bike and hiking tour at the Niedernsill village square. We follow the village road towards the church and continue straight ahead. At the next fork in the road, you can turn left into Mühlbachtal (e.g. Schaunbergalm) or right into Rattensbachtal. We keep right towards Rattensbachtal. Shortly afterwards there is another small crossroads, here we also continue right along the Rattensbachweg.

Now we follow the beautiful forest path for approx. 9.5 kilometers. The first 2/3 are the steeper part of the route. At the last junction, we turn left towards Samer Grund- und Hochalm. We ride up to the Stefflscharte (2,033 m) and leave our bikes here. Now we continue on foot to the summit (330 m altitude difference). We hike up the hiking trail to the right of the fence for approx. 30 minutes.

At the summit at 2,362 m, you have a breathtaking panoramic view. There is also a wooden bench with a table next to the summit cross for a leisurely snack. Incidentally, the Gamskrägen summit cross is the largest in Central Europe. The return route is the same.

Tip: From the Stefflscharte (bike depot), you have the option of heading left up to the Scheibenhöhe summit (20-30 minutes).
