Goiserer Hut and Mount Kalmberg
The Goiserer Hütte, with the Kalmberg, is among the loveliest destinations around Bad Goisern. One can drive over the Goiserer bridge to Stainach. The Goiserer Hütte sits on the summit ridge high above us. We ignor the route marking and follow the ever ascending path along the Schüttbach. Across the deteriorated Trockentannalm, with its nine huts, we climb quickly on increasingly steep terrain. The serpentine bends are well planned. The mountain flanks, high above us, are exceedingly steep.
Mountaineers have built a resting place of larch wood - the Wallmann-Poldl Rast. The deteriorated huts on the Niederen Scharten Alm are ignored. the mountain landscapes are ever lovelier. We can see out to the Toten Gebirge, and down to Goisern. Wonderful larches rice above lovely dwarf-pines are we near the hut which will provide us with provisions. We can see the Großglockner from here.The view to the Dachstein summit, down to Goisern and Gosau , to the Gosaukamm an dth whole range is unforgettable. From the Goiserer Hütte we choose the route down to Hochmuth and reach the valley in three hours. One can also reach the Goiserer Hütte from Gosau. the path is about for hours longer, but less difficult.
