Salzburg Alpine Path: St. Martin – Werfenweng

Tour description

The starting point is St. Martin. The alpine path runs west from the parish church of St. Martin and up to the Buttermilchalm. Passing the Alm, the access road is left to the left in order to hike to the Ostermaisalm. On the forest road you get to the Karalm: after a stop at the certified alpine summer hut, it goes back a short distance along the forest path until the path in the curve at the barrier on the right hand side leads into the forest and onto the hiking trail to the Korein Alm[1]. (Caution: This section can be slippery!)
The path leads past the Korein-Alm to the Frommer Hochalm, the starting point of a high-altitude trail. Follow the Höhenweg 201, which leads downhill again after a little more than 2 kilometers. The footpath leads past the Laubichlalm and leads into the forest path 51b, from where the Almenweg branches off to the right after about 150 meters into the hiking path 51. After a good 600 meters you will reach the Dr. Heinrich Hackel Hut, from where you can descend into the Wengerau. The Almenweg leads along the Wengeraustrasse to the center of Werfenweng.
