ZirbenPark Circular Route

Start
Mittelstation of the mountain lift Hochzeiger (2031m)
Finish
Mittelstation of the mountain lift Hochzeiger (2005m)
Swiss Trac Tour: It is a level road to get to the ticket office at the valley station of Hochzeiger gondola from the car park. From there, take a lift to the gondola access on the first floor. Right next to the lift on the ground floor is a wheelchair-accessible toilet. Entry to the gondola is via a mobile ramp. The gondola can accommodate wheelchairs with a maximum width of 60 cm. The Swiss-Trac can be transported in the same gondola or in the following gondola by accompanying persons. At the top station the gondola staff will again be of assistance to exit the gondola with a mobile ramp. Adjacent to the top station of the gondola you will find the catered mountain hut “Zeigerrestaurant”. It can be accessed across a meadow, which is hard to navigate and then via a ramp with a considerable gradient. There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet in the basement which is, however, not easy to find as it is not incorporated in the signposted area. Please note that during the summer part of the lift is covered by banners and making it hard to spot. The toilet is spacious and offers enough room for turning circles.

Starting at “Zeigerrestaurant” follow the beautifully laid-out 1.5 km long “Zirben” [pine] trail. Please note that there are large sections with a steep incline on loose gravel surface and taking this route is only advisable for experienced Swiss-Trac users. The steeper section passing the “Zirbenzapfen” [pine cone] with a big slide can, however, be bypassed by only taking part of the route. After approx. 2/3 of the trail, you will reach another catered mountain hut, “Tanzlalm”. Unfortunately neither the restaurant nor the ground floor toilets are suitable for wheelchair users. The last third of the trail back to the “Zeigerrestaurant” features a steep uphill section.

Start
Arzl/Wald car park by the church Wald (886m)
Finish
Arzl/Wald car park by the church Wald (886m)
Swiss-Trac Tour: ​Start: car park near the church. From there, follow a tarmac road uphill past the parish office in the direction of Wald Mairhof. Following the road for ca. 0.5 km take the turnoff to the left. From there, follow a tarmac pedestrian way alongside the road for the next 0.5 km to the hamlet of Wald Obermauri. At the next junction turn left and follow Kugelgasse downhill. After ca. 30 m turn left and follow the pavement, which will take you back to the road. Once there, return to the church.

Hike to Taschachalm mountain hut

Finish
Mandarfen Parkplatz Rifflseebahn (1675m)
Swiss-Trac hike: From the car park at Rifflseebahn gondola take the service track to the “Taschachalm” on 1,830 m. The trail is 1.5 km long and is manageable with the Swiss-Trac in approx. 30 minutes. The terrace can be accessed via a wooden ramp. The spacious terrace of the catered mountain hut “Taschachalm” offers beautiful views of the mountains that are part of Rifflsee ski resort during the winter season. The toilets are in the basement but this can also be accessed via a side entrance from the outside. Here, only one step must be mounted. The toilet cubicle is 115 cm wide and 190 cm deep. The door is 80 cm wide.

Hike to Aifneralm mountain hut

Start
Car park near the hamlet Puschlin (1518m)
Finish
Car park near the hamlet Puschlin (1518m)
Swiss Trac Tour: Start: Please do not take the trail starting straight at the Naturparkhaus, as this features a short section that is not accessible by Swiss-Trac.
Start this route at the car park near the hamlet of Puschlin. Initially follow a well-prepared forest path. You will cover some altitude on this initial steep uphill section. Please note that you should never leave the main path. It leads past beautiful alpine meadows and after approx. 2/3 of the way, the surface of the path will become a little rougher and harder to navigate. After ca. 1.5 h you will reach the catered mountain hut “Aifner Alm”. The hut itself is accessible via a ramp, however, after rainfall the path leading up to it may be washed out in places. The toilet can be accessed by mounting one step. The corridor is very narrow due to a box. The toilet can be accessed by wheelchair but there is not sufficient space for turning circles.
