Starting from the village centre walk past to the right of the church, past the Hotel Alpbacherhof and turn left at the bridge onto the "Mühlbach" path. Follow the A3 signs to a bridge, cross the bridge and follow the signs for "Heimatweg", at the Kneipp facility follow the signs for "Blaiksteg" Hösl Saddle.

At the Hösl chapel bear right and follow the "Thalerkögl - Schatzberg" signs. One passes the old and new  Höslalm and the forest track becomes a trail leading up to the Schatzbergalm (approx. 2 h 30 min). The climb from here to the peak cross at 1.898 m takes approx. 30 min. Immeadiately below the peak is the Gipföhit (a further mountain restaurant). 

For the walk back take either the A28 from the Alpbach/Wildschönau new connecting lifts top station or walk back via the "Schatzberglacke" (pond) and the "Alpenrosenweg" down to the "Wurmeggalm". Both paths merge and continue to the "Pechalm" and the "Alpengasthof Rossmoos". Take the "Oberer Höhenweg" down to Alpbach; either along the A3 or on the tarmacked road.

Author’s recommendation
  • Take advantage of the beautiful areas along the way to recharge your batteries. Two Kneipp facilities, the beautiful Hösljoch chapel, the rustic alpine pastures and the peak with its panoramic views are popular power spots along the route.
