Route Description

From the mountain station of the 8 seater Panorama Jet Zwieselalm the trail leads downhill along the eastern edge of the "Sonnenalm" past the old lift line and to the valley station of the 4-seater chairlift Törleck.

From there the trail continues to the mountain station of the Gosaukamm cable car (summer operation only), where a fascinating view of the rugged and deeply snow-covered rocks of the Gosaukamm is revealed.

The trail now leads in a westerly direction past "Gablonzerhütte" and "Breininghütte" along the ski trail towards the 8er-Panorama-Jet.

Shortly before crossing the slope (please be careful!) you come to a small hill where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the impressive Dachstein glacier and the summit of the high Dachstein (2996 m). Continue past the "Sonnenalm" and back to the starting point.

The trail is marked with red poles and yellow signs, distance between poles approx. 30–40 m.
