In addition to the Nordic skiing trail from Pill/Angern, an interesting winter hiking route runs through the wide open valley basin of Gurgl.
Over small steps and bridges, past a small larch forest and old farmhouses, the trail takes you to Obergurgl and towards Zirben Alm at the foot of the natural monument. The hiking trail travels either on the right, sometimes on the left along Gurgler Ache brook, showing both the original and modern side of this popular winter sports resort.
