Directions

From the parish church in Gais, head north between the houses into the forest (marker 2). You cross it and then reach some mountain farms surrounded by meadows. Continue through the forest in a southerly direction until you reach the Kehlburg, which lies at an altitude of 1,187 m on a narrow wooded hill and presents itself today only as a ruin. From here you hike to the beautifully situated farms of Amaten (marked K), where you can stop for refreshments. Through the steep forest hillsides, head in a north-westerly direction (marker 5) to the Bärentalhof farm and across the fields back to Gais.
