A lovely circuit with cosy and rustic alpine pastures, which invite you to stop for a refreshing break. An easy single trail leads from Donnersbachwald to the alpine dairy village of the Lärchkaralm and along a forest road to the Stallaalm.
Take the road from Donnersbachwald to Hinterwald and from there follow the single trail to the idyllically rustic Lärchkaralm. From there, continue along the forest road to get to Stallaalm.

This tour starts in the center of Donnersbachwald. A forestry road takes you on a ca. 6 km-long climb to the Hintere Mörsbachalm, which is also the trailhead for many potential hikes up into the surrounding mountains. The descent initially takes us along the same route, but only as far as the Mörsbachwirt, where we now turn right. After a short single trail, we again get back on the forestry road, followed by a short, sharp climb along the ski slopes. We now drop to the Riesneralm car park and continue along the road in the direction of Feriendorf Hinterwald. At km 18.5 we switch to the hiking path, which is an easier ride. Along this path we also find 2 natural sources of power, where you can relax and truly recharge your batteries. The path merges with the forestry road in front of the Lärchkaralm, from where it is about another 2 km uphill to the Stalla Alm. After enjoying a much-needed Styrian cheese sandwich, we begin our descent first to the Lärchkar, then along the forestry road back to the valley below. The last 3 km are a very enjoyable ride along a paved road to Donnersbachwald.
A stop at one of the two idyllic huts in the Lärchkaralm is a definite highlight of this tour.
Parking spaces are available at the foot of the Riesneralm, which is about 500 metres away from the starting point.
