The hike to Duisitzkarsee Lake starts from the valley floor at Eschachalm. Through pine forest with 2 larger clearings you ascend to one of the most popular photo motifs in Styria. In the warm summer months the lake is also a good opportunity for refreshment.
From the trail head at Eschachboden
you follow trail n° 775 towards Duisitzkarsee Lake. At the beginning the trail ascends quite steeply, passing the waterfall of Seebach creek through the pine forest on the way to Saghütten
chalets, which you reach after approximately 45 minutes. After a short break you continue to the clearing of Kesslerboden
where the trail is a little less steep than in the beginning. Saghütten and Kesslerboden offer a great view to the valley head of Obertal
valley with Samspitze
Beyond Kesslerboden the trail starts to ascend steeper again. After a couple of switchbacks through the forest you reach Duisitzkarsee Lake after another 30 minutes, where Duisitzkarseehütte and Fahrlechütte chalets invite for refreshments and a snack. Duisitzkarsee Lake is a picturesque mountain lake and the hike is a perfect option for families.
If you prefer you can also ascend and descend via a forestry road.
