More information

From Schladming take provincial highway L722 (Rohrmoosstraße road) to Rohrmoos and at the roundabout continue on provincial highway L723 (Tälerstraße road) to the village Untertal.
 

Heading towards the elementary school along the Ahornweg, you will pass many beautiful, traditional farms. The Dachstein massif at your back, the Schladminger Tauern, where the miners once dug for silver and nickel, before you. Follow the stream into the valley – and along the way, a perfect opportunity to cool off your feet in the cool, wet water. Hiking on to the Nickel Museum is definitely worthwhile. Ambitious hikers can add an extra 30 minutes by going to the Eschachalm. Along the entire route are bus stops for your return trip to Untertal or to Schladming.
