Route description Wasserfallsteig

The trail begins at the valley station of Muckenkogel- Bergbahn (mountain railway). The path leads along the lift route to the Kolmer waterfall with its remarkable rocky cirque. The upper rock climb has two stairs and two transitions that were rebuilt in 2000 and are well protected by a railing. From there the waterfall trail in the Kolmsteig continues, leading to the former Stiftsgasthaus Kolm (Abbey Guest House). Connecting paths from the Kolmsteig lead to the small waterfall and the Lilienfelder Hütte (cabin). (Connection to the Lilienfelder Rundwanderweg (trail) - marked blue).
