From the parking possibility Hebsanger you hike along a forest road first through the forest then through alpine meadows to the Reitalm.

On the Reitalm the children awaits a huge playground with a lake and a petting zoo. The adults enjoy in the meantime a delicious snack with self-made prodcuts such as bread, butter, cheese, bacon or sausage. Of course, a schnaps shouldn't be missed.

The areas in the Reitalm and the Tofernalm were once used for copper mining.

Then you follow a hiking path to the Rosskarkopfscharte. You desecend to the  Hinterkaseralm (closed) and further to the Vorderkaseralm. Here all the hikers get spoiled with specialities.

Then you hike down on the forest road or on the shortcuts through the forest back to the parking possibility Hebsanger, which is the start point of this hiking tour.

Author’s recommendation

The Reitalm is a paradise for children - there is a big playground with a small mountain lake.
