Description

A charming, challenging hiking trail that starts from the area’s most stunning viewpoint - the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain. Passing round meandering bends, over mountain paths, and up a climb secured with steel rope, before heading down towards Harschbichl on the St. Johann side, this is an exciting, varied route that’s a real treat for experienced hikers.
Ascent with the Hornbahn I and the Horngipfelbahn to the Horngipfel. 
Via a mountain pasture hiking trail past the Hornkapelle chapel you will reach an asphalt path after a short stretch. Leave this path at the first bend and hike down on the right side over the "Ludwig Scheiber-Steig" in the direction of Harschbichl. The path is secured with steel cable at the narrowest point. Enjoy the fantastic view of the Wilder Kaiser and the Leuken valley. Attention - sure-footedness is required here. Halfway down, the path leads over numerous hairpin bends and steep alpine meadows towards Harschbichl.  At the fork in the trail, either walk straight ahead along the gravel path briefly uphill towards the Harschbichl mountain inn (1,604m) or turn right here towards "Jägersteig" - "Hoferschneid". The path leads across alpine meadows to the ridge of the Kitzbüheler Horn. Along the narrow "Hofer Schneid" grade you hike over lush alpine meadows towards the summit house. Stop for a moment and enjoy the wonderful view of the Loferer Steinberge, the Glockner- and Venediger- mountain. Sure-footedness is also required here. 
Arrived at the Gifpelhaus you take the Horngipfelbahn and Hornbahn I back down into the valley. 
Tip - Hike from the Gipfelhaus to the top station of the Hornbahn II. Hike trough the alpine flower garden. Descent with the Hornbahn II and I
