Wonderful hike to the easternmost mountain of the Tannheimer Tal. This hike makes the hiker's heart beat faster. A wonderful natural scenery is waiting for you.

Wir starten am Parkplatz neben der Bundesstraße. Hier folgen wir dem Weg in den Weiler Gaicht. Der Ortsstraße entlang bis wir den Weiler Gaicht hinter uns lassen. Nach kurzem Fußmarsch über die Felder startet der Weg zu unserem Ziel der Gaichtspitze. Am Anfang des Weges laufen wir bis zur Baumgrenze im Wald. Danach geht es oberhalb der Waldgrenze zum Gipfel. Nach einer gemütlichen Rast am Gipfel folgen wir dem gleichen Weg zurück zum Ausgangspunkt.

Enjoy the wonderful view.
