Tour description

From the train station Wald one chooses the trail along Naren and Lauf to reach Faltigberg. Now one follows the signs to Farner. After crossing the Oberholz ski lift, one arrives three quarters of an hour later on the Farneralp, covered with trees so one does not have a good view. The mountain terminus of the ski lift offers a better view. On the way to the Schwarzenberg one wants to watch out for cow pats. The tree-covered Schwarzenberg, like its neighbor to the south, also does not afford a good view. At Schwämi one can choose among various trails, and the partly very steep and slippery direct path to Tössscheidi can be avoided if one goes eastwards (Alternative A). If one is hungry, the restaurant Poo-Alp can be reached by going in a southwesterly direction for a few minutes. From the Tössscheidi one follows the gravel path that runs along the Vorderstöss for a kilometer. Then one crosses on a little footbridge and climbs up to the Brandenfelshöhle. The direct trail from this cave to Wolfsgrueb is not easy, as it is narrow and slippery and occasionally one must climb over tree trunks. After Wolfsgrueb comes the crowning finale: one follows in Sagenraintobel the Schmittenbach, with its romantic waterfalls and little ponds, for a half hour.


Variants

Alternative A: Shortcut from Farner directly to Hof Ger.
Alternative B: Shortcut from Schwämi directly to Wolfsgrueb.
Alternative C: By way of Oberholz to the Hittenberg, where one can get one’s strength back in the «Lauf» the best restaurant for miles around.
