Beautiful, leisurely hike along the Gerlosbach.

From Gerlos – Gmünd to Gerlos, a variety of stations show the relationship between man and nature. For children as well as adults, this is an educational nature and sensory experience.

Head from the Geislerhof past the Gmünd reservoir and continue to Gasthof Kühle Rast. From here, the path leads through a short stretch of forest slightly uphill. You will hike around 1 hour along the Schwarzach to the Schwarzalm snack station. Along this path are info boards with local animals such as marmots, chamois, eagles, etc.

Fish Nature Trail

1-hour, easy hike along the Gerlosbach. Hiking boots recommended!

From Gasthof Oberwirt, the path leads along the Gerlosbach and past the Isskogel lift to the Krummbach bridge. Past the bridge, the path bends to the left. Right after this, a path leads into the "Funsingau" valley, which becomes narrower after ca. 20 minutes. Through this valley on the left bank of the river, you will reach the dam crest of the Durlaßboden reservoir. Along the path are info boards with local fish species.
