From the Mandldorf, you can either hike along the hiking path or you take the forestry road in the direction to the Aigenalmen. The forestry road is also suitable for children's carriages.
You hike steadily upwards through the forest. The Aigenalm Chapel is definitely worth a visit. After a small hunting lodge you have to decide which mountain hut you prefer. The lower one is the Aigenalm-Paulhütte. Here, besides a snack with self-made delicacies, there are also a few hot dishes. You should definitively try the Kaiserschmarrn.
Just 15 min away is the Aigenalm-Mandlhütte. Here, too, you are spoiled with delicacies from their own production. Children prefer to play on the little brook. Of course both mountain huts can be combined with each other.
Through a large mountain area you come to Schmalzscharte. From here you could descend to Bad Hofgastein. Up here, you have a beautiful view to the Frauenkogel.
You hike down to the Bachalm. There, you are spoiled with self-made delicacies. You hike down along the forestry road or along the short-cuts through the forest to the valley. At the Hasler-Heimalm (closed) you better take the hiking path, then you are faster as when you walk along the road. At the Schmiedhof farm, you take the Panoramawanderweg towards Grossarl. You walk past the Hotel Moargut until you finally come back to Mandldorf, the starting point of the tour.
