Elevation change: ca. 389 m
Time on trail: ca. 3.5 hours, intermediate level of difficulty.
Arrival: via the B320 towards Schladming, Exit at Pichl, and via the Reiteralm toll road (fee for use) to the "Reiteralmhütte"
You hike from the car park uphill along marked path No. 772
to the Gasselhöhe 2001, with magnificent views of the Dachstein and
Radstädter Tauern. The high trail, which undulates gently up- and
downhill, leads us to the summit of the Rippetegg. The loop trail is
particularly attractive, since it takes us steeply downhill ( trail
marked No. 66) to beautifully situated Gasselseen lakes (Ober- and
Mittersee ). In so-called "Mirror Lake" (the Mittersee), we see the
reflection of the Dachstein (a definite postcard photo motif!).
Pleasant refreshment opportunities with splendid views of the Dachstein massif at the Gasselhöhhütte as well as the Reiteralmhütte.
