BergeSeen Trail Stage 11: Goiserer Hütte – Gosau-Hintertal

Activate map
Trail Route: Goiserer Hütte – Gosau – Gablonzer Hütte – Vorderer Lake Gosau – Gosau-Hintertal
From the Goiserer Hütte to Gosau (2 ½ hours)
Immediately below the Goiserer Hütte alpine hut, the trail begins its descent toward Gosau at a trail marker. The route heads down the level terrain of mountain pastures, passing several beautiful huts of the Schartenalm meadow, to a trail marker. At this point, the trail continues to descend straight ahead through the trees to a forest road. The route continues downhill along the road for one kilometre (beautiful views of the Dachstein Mountain), turns left and then goes straight on through the forest to the huts of the Iglmoosalm (1206 m) which serve food and drink to visitors.

From there the trail continues downhill along a mostly broad path through the shady forest to a small carpark above the community of Ramsau.

The trail then makes a sharp right across a bridge and then continues along a narrow road to the Pass Gschütt Highway. After crossing the highway, the path continues onward to arrive at the protestant church of Gosau.

From Gosau to the Gablonzer Hütte (3 hours)
From the protestant church, the trail ascends to the edge of the forest. From there, the route begins a beautiful ascent along moderately steep terrain through the forest. After crossing a forest road, the trail continues onward through several swampy sections which must be crossed by way of wooden bridges to finally arrive at a forest road. The trail heads left for 500 metres along the forest road.

The path turns right and ascends to the mid-valley station of the Hornspitz ski lift. From there, the route continues along flat terrain to the Falmbergalm. The trail follows a forest road for approximately one kilometre until once again turning to the right. The route then begins a steep ascent to the Gablonzer Hütte alpine hut. At 1522 metres, the hut marks the highest point in this stage. From here, hikers will enjoy a spectacular view of the wild and jagged peaks of the nearby Gosaukamm Mountains and the ‘Vorderer’ Lake Gosau with the Dachstein Mountain just beyond.

From the Gablonzer Hütte to the Gosau-Hintertal (2 hours)
The trail descends moderately steeply across a mountain meadow and then continues to the right down a steep path through a beautiful mountain forest to the Kraugartenalm. It then continues onward to the ‘Vorderer’ Lake Gosau. This section of the trail can also be achieved using the Gosaukamm Cable Car. The mountain station of the cable car is located below the Gablonzer Hütte.

From the ‘Vorderer’ Lake Gosau, the routes heads out of the valley along a hiking trail to the left of the Gosau Stream. The trail passes two carparks and then continues for a short distance along the street. The route heads left once again along a hiking trail and continues until arriving at the Gasthof Gosauschmied inn, marking the end point of this stage to the Gosau-Hintertal.

Vis-à-vis users

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.


The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.


The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.


We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.


Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.


The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.


2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.


The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.


The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.


3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.


We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.


4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:


Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.


a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.
