Lake Brechsee

There is a road leading quite closely to the Brechsee at 1.800m above sea level, coming from Zaunhof in Pitztal (the opposite side of the valley). From the end of the road you will find a very well signposted walking trail through the dense high forest until you reach the lake. It takes approximately 1 hour to reach the lake from the end of the road. The lake, located in the municipal area of St. Leonhard, forms an extension of the little high valley and is surrounded by rough boulders from rockslides and moraines. The idyllic lake is 237m long and 87m wide and an ideal location for a break and a picnic.

From Rehwald, take the agricultural road to the catered mountain hut Mauchele Alm. Then continue on a steep 
path in the direction of Brechsee/ Stallkogel. This path forks off after approximately 100 m. The lefthand track leads to the Stallkogel – take the track to the right, which leads to the beautiful Alpine lake Brechsee. At the lake, enjoy fantastic vistas of Wenns and Arzl and the panoramic Alpine scenery of the Venet, Tschirgant and Gemeindekopf summits. From there, the path forks off again: follow the steep path to the catered 
mountain hut Söllbergalm, which is an approximately 30 to 45 minute walk from the lake. From the Alm, walk on the agricultural road in the direction of Wiese. After approximately 150 m turn off right by a moderately steep path leading back to the Mauchele Alm. This path continues through larch and Swiss pine forests until it joins with the agricultural road to the Mauchele Alm. From there, it is about 200 m further to reach the Mauchele peak. Descend on this path to the starting point in Rehwald.
