Short but extremely difficult switchback trail on the Schafkopf mountain starting very close to the Giessenbach sattel. Barely used by hikers, who usually stay on the main trail.

Access Info

Forest road from Farchant to Giessenbach sattel. Turn right on to the forest road leading to Schafkopf peak and the trail branches off to the right after a very short distance.

This trail is unsanctioned.

       Definetly need to be comfortable with steep and tight switchback, and not being scared of riding next to steep. Slipping out of the trail is definetly NOT an option.
