The Karkopf is with 1738 m the highest peak of the whole Lattengebirges. It lies exactly on the border between the municipality Bayerisch Gmain (district Forst St. Zeno) in the west and the municipality Bischofswiesen (district Bischofswiesener Forst) in the east.
Due to the good view over the entire massif, the mountain is a popular hiking area. Untersberg, Hoher Goll and Watzmann can be seen in the south, Zwiesel and Hochstaufen in the north. One can climb the summit from different sides, z. For example, on the Predigtstuhl or on the Törlschneid von Winkl. The ascent over the Alpgartensteig has a slight via ferrata character with some ladders, stairs and rope guards. The trail is only suitable for experienced hikers, as you have to be free from giddiness and sure-footed. From the summit you can hike to the mountain station of the Predigtstuhlbahn and from there take the Bad Reichenhall cable car. Also, the way to the Stone Agnes and the red oven is possible.
