This is a trail where the journey is as interesting as the destination. Enjoy cascading waterfalls, roaring creeks, towering seracs and views of glistening glaciers. Trailhead of East Tirol’s Eagle Walk Stage 1 is at Prägraten/Ströden, close to spectacular Umbal Waterfalls. Starting under a canopy of ancient larch trees, the trail begins its long and winding way up the mountain. As it breaks out of the woods, keep an eye out for marmots which can often be seen here on a sunny day. Walking past Göriach Ochsner Hut, the route continues to Essener-Rostocker Hut that provides the perfect rest stop for hikers. Follow Schwerin Trail beneath Kleiner Geiger on your way to Türml Col. Rock cairns as trail markers will show you the way to Johannis Hut, the oldest mountain refuge of the Eastern Alps. The hut dates back to 1857 and was completely refurbished in 1999. It's a little long and a little challenging getting to Johannis Hut. But the scenic rewards? Far from little-they're gigantic!
