Hike description

  1. Turn left out of Flintsbach Bahnhof (c.480m) and walk 1Km along Innstraße, on the other side of the main road take Maiwandstraße, then Petersbergweg and Astenweg.
  2. Follow the path up in the direction of Hohen Asten for about 500m and then, instead of staying on the road, take the unsigned right turning.
  3. For 6Km follow the signs to Hohen Asten (1104m).
  4. Just before the hutte, take the right turn for Riesenkopf, which stays level and goes anticlockwise round Asten for about 2Km to Riesenkopf-Alm (1176m).
  5. About 50m before the right turn to Grosse Riesenkopf, there is a stile on the left side without a sign; this is the path to Rehleitenkopf.
  6. Cross the stile and walk 1Km up Rehleitenkopf. There is not really a proper path, but cross the stream and stay on the right-hand side of it. At the top there is a plateau with a fence along it. There is an unsigned stile across the fence leading into a small wood. This is the path to the Gipfel.
  7. Walk through the wood for 200m and you will emerge only 50m from the Gipfelkreuz (1338m). After visiting the cross, return through the wood the way you came.
  8. The path south down Rehleitenkopf is not well marked. Walk down 500m; try to stay on the top of the rounded ridge that leads down to a field and some woodland with a fence in front of them.
  9. Go through the gap in the fence and then stay close to the fence on the right-hand side of field. At the back of this field is a stile. Cross the stile and follow the much better path down 1Km to where to Rehleitenkopf path rejoins the Asten path (c.1230m).
  10. Follow this path down for 3Km, in the direction away from Asten. There are several places where it is not clear which fork to take; look for the red spots on the trees and take that path. This should eventually bring you to Regauer Hochalm (c.1100m), where a few paths converge.
  11. From here, there is a small path, signed, leading to Bichlersee. Follow this path for 4Km to Bichlersee (c.1000m). If you see a sign to Kirnstein then you have just missed a right turn to Bichersee! Beware on this last 500m; there is a narrow section with a rope to hold onto, which should probably not be attempted in snow.
  12. At Bichlersee, the path down to valley to Oberaudorf should be off to the left, i.e. just a quarter of the way round the lake. Instead walk half way round the lake and take follow the signs from there, which is much clearer.
  13. Walk down the road about 2Km past the Bichlersee Hutte to the left turning which is sign-posted to Grauer Stein and take this path.
  14. Then walk a further 5Km down to Oberaudorf (482m).
