Description: The Dolomitensteig is closed every year from 15 September to 01 October for hunting reasons.
Start and finish of this beautiful panorama hike is the tavern of Baumschlagerreith situated at the end of the Stodertal Valley.
From the parking area at the Baumschlagerreith tavern (724m above sea-level) walk along the right hand side of the game enclosure along the forest road for about 500m until you reach the sign „Hochsteinalm“. Continue along a small path to the actual trail of the Hochsteinalmsteig (Nr. 19), which leads in steap serpentines up to the Hochsteinalm alpine hut (1296m above sea-level/not managed). Once you reach the Hochsteinalm alpine hut, you can already see the Lögeralm alpine hut (not managed) to your top right, which you can reach within 10 minutes of walk.
Take time for a break and enjoy the stunning views. Above the Lögeralm hut you will find the starting point of the Stodertaler Dolomitensteig (high alpine climb) .
High Alpine Experience necessary – must be free from giddiness!
The climb continues along the steep walls without much up and down. The landscape becomes bizarre and some tricky passages are secured with steel ropes. At the most difficult spot, the descent towards 'Schwarzgraben' , you will reach the Gumpenkaskaden (cascades) with beautiful water falls. The rock pools are filled with crystal clear water and the panoramic view is indescribably beautiful - bizarre rock formations mixed with breathtaking alpine scenery.
From now on the path is easier, leading through a forest until you reach the so called Poppensand – a huge pebble field. Go down the pebble field to get back to the marked trail of the Salzsteigjoch. The last part of the hike leads along a forest road back to the tavern of Baumschlagerreith.
An absolute culinary highlight at the tavern is the smoked stag ham, the perfect way to end this experience.
Current signage: red-white-red signs, partly marked „Dolomitensteig“
Attention: Closed for hunting from 15. September to 1. October!
The trail is especially recommended on hot days, when the crystal-clear water of the Gumpenkaskaden invites you to cool off.
Closed for hunting reasons from September 15 to October 1 of each year!
