On weekends and public holidays, the alpine pasture museum in the Ardningalm is also open.
If we look towards Bosruck, we see the access to the Wildfrauen Klettersteig, which many mountaineers appreciate because of the ridge walk and the airy views. But we choose the path diagonally downhill to a mountain hut, from where a forest road leads downhill at a leisurely pace. Now you can already see the Great Pyhrgas with its mountain foot surrounded by mountain pines and the white-grey limestone peak. After about 1 km from Arlingsattel we meet the road that leads up from the Bosruckhütte to Spital am Pyhrner Seite. We can now follow the forest road uphill or we can cross the road, pass a cattle dam and after a few meters we come to a grassy forest road, which takes us with a slight incline in about 15 minutes to the Rohrauerhaus.
Now - depending on the time of day - we have earned a coffee with cake or a hearty snack or even a warm soup. Freshly strengthened we continue to the Pyhrgasgatterl. Here 3 community borders meet, namely Ardning, Hall and Spital am Pyhrn. The Hofersteig on the Great Pyhrgas also starts here. However we take the path towards Ardningalm, a last ascent to a scenic saddle.
The Enns valley from Ardning to Selzthal lies at our feet and a trail leads us through lovely alpine meadows to the Bacher Alm, where another forest road begins. We hike back through the forest and across the alpine pastures to the point where we branch off to the Arlingsattel. With the Bosruck in front of our eyes, with a little luck we might see some chamois at the foot of the mountain, we walk down to the Ardningalm hut. On the terrace or in the rustic parlour we let the Karleckrunde end.
