I like this trail because it is easy to extend into a longer hike in which you can loop around The Valley and reach 6 of the nearby peaks. The beginning is a bit tough if you take the steeper zig zag trail, but is super easy once you’re hiking the ridge. The longest part of the hike is along the ridge line so bring sunscreen. The way back down via the stream between the peaks is well maintained and great for mountain biking finally the bend back around toward Ettal is flat and great way to cool off.

Only Completed first 8km. steady up up. breathtaking views. ski trail in winter. need snow equipment. really enjoyed.

Beautiful views. A steady up,up,up track. Too many people.

This is a great hike! I’ve done it many times and the views never to bore. If you do this counterclockwise I’d make one change to the route. After the summit, continue down the main trail on Kramersteig to the west. You will hit a valley with a farm, cows and a great little beer garden called Stepberg. http://www.stepberg-alm.de The decent is a bit easier and longer but you can stop and eat, rehydrate (with beer?) and enjoy the views. If you go clockwise, you have the same option to stop at Berggaststätte St. Martin am Grasberg which is maybe 30-45 min from finishing. Great views here also of GP! http://martinshuette-grasberg.de

its really good hike to start!

Amazing views and beautiful hike! However, the map shown here seemed to be a little outdated- we ended up going 13 miles instead of the 9 listed here! It made for a long hard day, but the views are worth it! Be prepared for a long day and consider getting more updated info before you go.

Beautiful views throughout the trail

A very beautiful trail but harder then I expected! Make sure you bring plenty of water and don't choose a day that's too hot. The hike takes a good 9h so plan accordingly. Also, Garmish-Partenkirchen is a beautiful city. Worth a stay!

This was a wonderful and challenging day hike. It took my husband and I 9 hours to complete with a few breaks and a stop at the summit for lunch. We were so lucky to have perfect weather for our hike. The scariest part was crossing the snow on the slope on the backside of the mountain, but the views at the top were worth it. I recommend taking the loop counterclockwise as we did. The way down was a tad longer, yet easier than the ascent. We hiked this at the end of May on the Tuesday before Ascension Thursday and we only saw six other people on the trail. This has been one of my favorite hikes yet.

Beautiful and well-marked trail with amazing views of Zugspitze and the Alps. It's a steep climb, but not too difficult. The trail is popular with locals and quite busy, but definitely not overrun like the trails on the opposite side of the valley. Along the way are a bunch of alpine cabins & farms offering Bavarian food. Another plus is that this trail is easily accessible by public transport, e.g. from Munich. Just take the train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen (approx. 1h) and walk from the train station to the trail head.
