Nadine planned a hike.
October 3, 2020
Up up and down! The sixth day leads from the panoramic Gowilalm over the Dr. Vogelgesang-Klamm in the Abbey of Spital am Pyhrn. After a hearty breakfast, you start with a view of the mighty mountain range and hike down to the Holzeralmboden. We continue to the Hofalmhütte at 1,305 meters above sea level. The hut is located on the west side of the Großer Pyhrgas and invites you to take a rest. After all, on the relatively short tour you are halfway through.From the Hofalmhütte it goes south up to the Hofalmsattel at 1,400 meters. We continue through the forest and pastures on the southern slope of the Großer Pyhrgas with partly beautiful views towards Gesäuseberge and Bosruck to the Rohrauerhaus at the Pyhrgasgatterl. After you have left the Bosruckhütte behind you, you continue down the valley. A special natural spectacle is waiting for you here.You hike through the wild, romantic, water-ridden Dr. Vogelgesang Gorge. It is about one and a half kilometers long. You walk directly along the water on wooden walkways and can feel the spray on your skin. A pleasant refreshment, especially on hot days. Nevertheless, a little caution is required because the wooden planks can be smooth. At the bottom you pass the toll booth and come down the stream past an electrical power plant and the houses in the district of Grünau until you arrive in the center of Spital am Pyhrn. You can spend your afternoon and evening sightseeing and eating ice cream.
