Trail description

Ride the chair lift atop Brentenjoch Col and follow signage to “Kaindlhütte”. A forest road will take you downhill. Follow this road past Brentenjochalm Alpine Pasture Hut until you get to the fork towards “Gamskogel”. This path gradually climbs atop 1,449-meter Gamskogel Peak. The route continues over wide open Alpine pastures and eventually reaches Kaindl Hut. The walk from Brentenjoch Col to Kaindl Hut takes roughly 2½ hours to complete. A one-hour walk on a forest road brings you back to the chair lift’s top terminal at Brentenjoch Col.

Strongly Recommended: Atop Brentenjoch Col, the trailhead of this walk, you are strongly recommended to take some time to get an eagle's eye view of the mountains at the Eagle View Overlooks, a special sightseeing telescope viewer that offers breathtaking 360° views of the surrounding ranges.
