Description

This challenging tour takes you to the summit of Harschbichl and back down again. Brace yourself for tough climbs, speedy descents, and awesome panoramic views!

Initially, you will find yourself on an asphalt path, but it quickly transforms into a dirt track through the forest.

At the middle station of the Harschbichl you will reach a beautiful alpine lake, the Angerer Alm. From here, to the summit the path gets steeper and takes you through a series of switchbacks and into the forest once more.

At the top, there are fantastic views across the Kitzbühel Alps and the looming Wilder Kaiser massif. Now it's time to reward that intense climb with a thrilling descent!

You will come back the way you climbed up, so you will have noticed that as well as nice flowy sections, there are also rockier patches and technically demanding obstacles to watch out for.
