A really varied hiking path is the so-called Enzianweg, which means Gentian Trail. The hiking path starts at the mountain station (or also at the valley station) of the Rofan funicular. From this place the path proceeds via Mauritzalm pasture the way up to the east edge of the Gschöllkopf mountain and further on to the Hochiss (2,299 m asl), which is the highest mountain of the Rofan mountains.
Proceeding down towards Streichelkopf, you reach the Steinernes Tor and the Dalfaz alpine pasture, where you can of course stop for a bite to eat. From this place you can proceed on foot or via funicular into the valley. Otherwise you can walk to Buchau and go back to the valley station of the Rofan funicular by bus. Due to its particular natural beauty as well as its cultivation and marking, the Gentian Trail has been awarded with a special honouring: “Bergweg mit Auszeichnung”.
