Wüstlau Trail Map

Beginning at the Häuslalm Hut (which can be reached by taking the Panoramabahn) you descend over 1000 metres to the Kaprun valley floor. Initially, you find yourself in open pastures with glorious views down the valley. You then enter a forest which is when the trail becomes very steep and technical. The trail is rocky and full of routes, as well as very tight switchbacks and elevated turns.
