Water Walk Stuibenfall

Tour description

This scenic loop is full of natural beauty and makes for a quiet, relaxing hike. The route takes you along Arzwinkel Waalweg with its gently burbling waters, and along Steppsteig Trail with its great views of Umhausen. The highlight of this wonderful hike is Stuibenfall, Tirol’s highest waterfall. During the initial section of this water walk, you will discover the Arzwinkel irrigation channel as you walk along an educational nature trail. Further along the way you can catch glimpses of the Horlachbach river – also known as Stuibenfall – cascading down the steep mountain slopes. The observation platform at the foot of the waterfall allows visitors to get a close up of the falls. Head back a little way until you get to Steppsteig This trail offers several interpretive panels with information on the forest, its flora and the region’s culture, and superb views of Umhausen. Continue along the old Niederthai Road to the viewing platform at Stuibenfall from where you can see the water cascading down to the lake below. From here on, the scenery changes completely. The trail continues through a lush mountain pasture and takes you through peaceful and serene surroundings. To get back take the high elevation trail and Kreuzweg , and continue on Steppsteig.
