Description

From Fulpmes via Schlickerbach, Panorama Lake and Berglerbründl to Pfarrachalm.

After a few metres of tarmac, the trail soon climbs quite steeply uphill; the roar of the Schlickerbach stream accompanies you all the way until just before we reach the Panorama Lake. Then over the Gloatsteig to the Berglerbründl, where you reach the highest point of the route. From there, you’ll find views aplenty in the constant ups and downs on the way to Pfarrachalm; the descent over Hirtensteig to Plöven and back to the starting point is again fantastic terrain for trailrunning.
