Pfaffenkendelsteig no. 69

The Pfaffenkendelsteig is an old path used formerly by hunters

and is to be recommended on hot days because it runs through

shady woodlands. It is a charming alternative path running from

the  Schmittenhöhe  to  the  cityXpress.  The  path  starts  a  little

below  the  summit  of  the  Schmittenhöhe  on  the  Pinzgauer

Spaziergang, above  the Ketting Alm. At  the end of  this wildly

romantic  path  one  reaches  the  Areit-  or  Schmittenhöhepath,

which  lead down  to  the  valley  – or  to  the  top  stations of  the

cityXpress or Areit I cable cars (in summer 2017 because of reconstruction closed), for a comfortable ride down.
