From the parking Stiegele (Crossing Gaislach / Hochsölden) you can start your hike to Gaislach.

As an alternative starting point, you can take the Zentrum Shuttle and follow the Ausserwaldstrasse towards Innerwald. A direct path leads through the Innerwanldstraße to Infang, where you can start your hike.

From Stiegele, the forest road leads through partly dense forest to the Gaislachalmen.

First you reach the Gasthof Sonneck. From there you follow the flat forest road on to the Gaislachalm and then to Silbertal. You can enjoy a wonderful view over the Ventertal from above.

Author’s recommendation

The huts along the hike invite you to a stopp. Gasthof Sonneck, Gaislachalm and the Silbertal are open all winter and have no rest days!
