Very beautiful view! You should be kicking, because the whole way is rocky. The last 300 meters of altitude are very steep and the track is not really visible, but still easy to walk on.

The north and west sides of the loop are absolutely stunning, it's definitely worth the climb. The east side of the loop feels like your going through a crater on the moon with all the rocks (I was not a fan of that part). you can take the chairlift to the starting point, it cost 12 euro or 17 if you also wanted a ride down. Start early it's a longer hike.

Wow, what a spectacular hike! The three lakes you will encounter, especially, in fact, Seebensee, are beautiful. You will have views almost all the way on the Zugspitzmassiv from the Austrian side. But the best part is probably the way from the Coburger Hütte to the Tajatörl, as the hut and Drachensee become smaller and smaller underneath you as you ascend upward. The trail is in perfect condition and just lots of fun. One of my favorite hikes ever in the German/Austrian Alps.

Very steep hike with a well worn in trail that is fairly easy to follow. Be cautious that the views from the top are not as great when it is cloudy, but must be spectacular during clear weather.

Trail is in good shape, moderately trafficked.. The hut was excellent. Though rather challenging, take the time to climb some of the beautiful peaks at the top of the valley.

It was a cool, about 11C, day and light rain all day but what a beautiful hike. Highly recommended.

Phenomenal views from the top. Bit of a scramble after the saddle point, but well marked throughout. About 2/3 to the top there is a pretty exposed section of gravel that's somewhat difficult to get traction on. Would recommend bringing trekking poles.

Have only walked a section of the loop Very beautiful scenery.

Very cool hike ... I started with the Eisenau section, tough hike upwards, goes for a while but some beautiful views over the lakes. You're rewarded at the top with...a pasture of cows! Walk down the trail a little and there's a cute restaurant you can grab a beer at for your troubles. The hike I took back, Burbaug I think, goes through some random fields, it was a little tough to follow where the trail was but I downloaded the Alltrails map on here and that really helped. Then you follow along a waterfall/stream the way down, really pretty. The last part, Unterach you're kind of just following along the road to get back, but looking over at the gorgeous water in the lake makes it okay. I took this pretty slow, stopped for a beer and lots of pictures, took me about 5 hours. There's a lot of trails out here, as a foreigner slightly tough to know where to go so I really appreciated this trail being on Alltrails.

This is a very steep and rewarding hike. You can take the switch backs to make it a bit easier but it will add more time.

We enjoyed the trail going along the river. Turning back down towards Schladming we found ourselves on a path that was sometimes barely visible through the grassy knolls. The path in the forest is not suitable for strollers which is marked as such on other maps. It does have fallen trees across the path and is sometimes quite narrow with a big drop off. It’s about 3 miles long and offers a variety of scenery. Highly recommend. Tennis shoes are fine for this hike.

Awesome trail with a spectacular view from the top. The ascent is quite steep and you should have some experience with scrambling to do it comfortably. We were treated to amazing views for the whole hike.

Very good to run! At the top it gets rocky and you have to "climb" a whole piece or just scramble. But this is completely harmless, because you can not really crash.

The hike recommends that the summit can be reached in 1.5 hrs and rated as easy on the blogs. We reached in 2 and I wouldn’t agree it was easy. It’s uphill and very rocky, so definitely a leg burn. The views of the reservoir and surrounding Alps are fantastic throughout the hike. Started late and did not have to deal with crowds at the suspension bridge.

beautiful in the winter with a lovely green Lake and some nice huttë.

Excellent hike with great views of Salzburg. Slow and steady with some rocky and rooty sections. Start at the town, the walk down crosses a road at about 1/3 of the way.
