At this three days hiking tour you will pass the most beautiful places at the south side of the Kaiser mountains. The trail begins at the natural lake in Going along the Wilder-Kaiser-Steig up to the Gruttenhütte, further along the Adlerweg hiking trail up to the Hintersteiner lake and at the third day accros the Walleralm to the Anton Karg Haus in the Kaisertal valley. Possible from June to mid October.

Day 1
The tour starts at the bathing lake in Going (750m). It is one of the most beautiful natural bathing lakes in Tyrol and you can park your car at the parking area at the lake (free of charge). From the lake you follow the road to the parking area Aschau and from there a forest path leads you to Graspoint Niederalm (1.075m). Before you arrive at the upper Regalm (1.313) the you will enjoy a breathtaking view at the Kitzbühel Alps.

The first stage of the Adlerweg, a long distance hiking trail with 126 stages across Tyrol, leads to the Baumgartnerkopf (1.572m). Via the "Wilder-Kaiser-Steig" and the more demanding "Jubiläumssteig" (sure-footed and no head for heights) you'll reach the Gruttenhütte at 1.600m.

Day 2
From the hut the Wilder-Kaiser-Steig leads around the Kaiser Hochalm (1.417m). From mid June to mid July the alpenrose flourishes. Take a rest at this beautiful place, cause the destination for the second day, the Hintersteiner lake (880m), is not far from here.

Day 3
At the third day the route leads you directly to the Stöfflhütte and Walleralm. From there you take the AV-Weg 827 to the next outpost, via Hocheck (1.470m) to Kaindlhütte (1.293m) at the northern side of the Scheffauer. Now you stay on the path which eventually leads you via meadows to the Bettlersteig. Via this path and the Straßwalch-Jagdhütte you'll arrive at the Anton Karg Hütte in Hinterbärenbad (829m) after about 2 hours. You got the opportunity to stay overnight or start your way back through the popular conservation area Kaiser valley. You will come by a variety of alpine cabins/huts who invite you to have a rest and a snack. After 2 hours you'll arrive at the Kaiser valley ascent in Kufstein.
