Trail description

This short circular walk begins at the Zillerbrücke bridge in Zell am Ziller, next to the Autohaus Huber car centre. Follow the signs to point where trails number 4 and 5 divide. There, head straight on. The trail is narrow but easy to walk on. It leads uphill through thick woodland until the trail branches off to the right and becomes steeper. The learning trail begins just below the road and takes walkers to Zellberg, where they can stop for a rest at the Genießergasthaus Schulhaus. This guesthouse serving food and drink is located next to the Herz-Jesu-Kapelle chapel, which is well worth a visit. From the guesthouse, head backpast the Josefs-Kapelle chapel to the starting point next to the Zillerbrücke bridge.
