Hike to the meadows of the Gerlostalalm hut

High altitude hike with beautiful panoramic view and high comfort level. It leads us through the federal forest high above the Gerlostal valley to the alpine meadows at the slopes beneath the Gerlostaljoch saddle.

The first section of the path, the so-called “Gerloser Wiesenweg” (Gerlos meadow path), follows an asphalt road and proceeds from the valley bottom above Gerlos (near the Isskogelbahn mountain station) through green meadows to the edge of the forest. The hike follows wide gravel roads entering the valley of the Riederbach stream (path no. 1) and continues towards the Gerlostalalm huts (no. 9).

This place offers idyllic wooden huts as well as an unforgettable panoramic view on the Gerlostal valley and the opposite peaks, ranging from the glaciers of the Wildgerlosspitze to Mount Grundschartner and other summits of the Zillertal Alps. Also the Durlassboden basin at the Gerlos pass can be seen from here. We recommend to bring along your own snacks and water - the Rösslalm is the only rest point along the first section of the hike.
