Eagle Path - Holiday in the holidayregion TirolWest

The Eagle Trail...

...is a path that connects Tyrol and a new way to get to know the "Land im Gebirg".
Cross the whole of Tyrol, hikers can follow the wings of the eagle and enjoy and discover the magnificent landscape. The route of the Eagle Trail symbolizes a proud eagle spreading its wings over the land. The eagle has been an animal steeped in history in Tyrol for centuries; it stands for freedom and independence.

Through the TirolWest vacation region runs the high-alpine variant of the Eagle Trail. Over peaks and ridges, the route leads through the Lechtal Alps, always at an altitude of 2,000 to 2,500 meters. This stage is a challenge for every mountaineer, with unforgettable impressions.

Eagle Walk Stage 19: Anhalter Hütte - Hanauer Hütte

Pfafflar is not a word that comes easily off the tongue, but here, the wow factor far exceeds the “ow” factor – this walk delivers much reward for the effort. The exposed and rugged trail from Anhalter Hütte Hut to Steinjöchl Col is assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. From the col, it’s a steep descent to Hahntennjoch Saddle. Gorgeous scenery awaits eager hikers in remote Pfafflar Valley, passing picture-postcard villages en route to Angerletal Valley and to the destination end of this walk, Hanauer Hütte Hut. With most of the 38 square kilometre Muttekopf Nature Preserve area lying above treeline, you'll be in a true Alpine environment. And all of that Alpine glory can be yours for a mere song-and only 750 metres of elevation gain. Don’t miss to turn your focus from the beautiful scenery to your feet as rare, exotic and imperilled Alpine wildflowers and plants can be found here.

Eagle Walk Stage 20: Hanauer Hütte - Württemberger Haus

Once aloft on those airy plains between Inn and Lech Rivers, you'll be in a true Alpine environment. You can expect to have very few encounters on this trail so if you enjoy solitude, and a good work-out this trail is for you. This hike is famous for its sharp ridges and the feeling of remoteness its rugged terrain offers. However, you’ll need to turn your focus from the scenery to your feet as you tackle vigorously steep climbs, scree and talus slopes, large boulders and cliffs assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. You’ll gain East/Back Dremelscharte Notch and walk past a necklace of sparkling Alpine lakes, adorning bold mountain faces. For many hikers this walk is far enough, contentment has already set in. Adventurous souls who are up for the extra effort can take the detour for Schlenkersee Lake, an aquatic gem wrapped in gorgeous scenery just below East Dremelscharte Notch.

Eagle Walk Stage 21: Württemberger Haus - Memminger Hütte

Ranking among the supreme ridge-running, cloud-probing, flower-swaying, peak-peering jaunts in all of the Lechtal Alps, the trek to Memminger Hütte Hut will have you hopping with joy with its nonstop horizon-spanning views of jagged ridges, cirques, flanks and colossal summits, though you'll work hard to reap those rewards. Once aloft on the ridgetop, the trail gains 2,657-metre Großbergspitze Spire and 2,612-metre Großbergkopf Peak along a precipice that is assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. A vigorous climb switchbacks up to Seescharte Notch; beyond it’s a knee-jarring descent to Memminger Hut, where a necklace of three sparkling Alpine lakes is flanked by rocky peaks.

Eagle Walk Stage 22: Memminger Hütte - Ansbacher Hütte

Gullies resemble large ditches, small valleys or narrow chasms, incised into the rock by the cascading waters of thundering creeks and brooks. On this walk, you’ll encounter lots of them, along with notches, crests, ridges, steep flanks and scree slopes that will keep your pace in check. The rewards are great--outstanding views, clean air, and relatively few people to share the trail with--but be prepared to work for every view you get. Make your way down into Parseiertal Valley on steep and exposed tussock slopes, before climbing up to Langkar Cirque and Grießlscharte Notch. Beyond Winterjöchl Col, the trail passes behind Stierkopf Mountain, and resumes its climb up Kopfscharte Notch across rugged terrain. From the notch, head south towards Ansbacher Hut on wide open tussock slopes, drinking fine views and savouring precious Alpine moments on your way.
