Rooty and rocky trail with some difficult spots from the Aufacker peak down through the forest towards Oberammergau, nothing extreme. Normally followed by Aufacker lower, which is slightly easier. Keep in mind that this is a popular hiking trail, in particular in the high season.

Access Info

      Just a few wet spots. Most of them before and after the traverse below the Gr. Aufacker peak.
