This round-trip trail with its four lakes, which vary in color according to the season, reflects the color palette of the water, from Caribbean blue to crystal-clear green. However, the small treasures in and around the lakes themselves should also be paid attention.


The trail leads from the hamlet of Lehn in Längenfeld over a trail to Stabele Alm past the Leckalm over lush green pastures on a ridge along to the first of the four mountain lakes, the Plattachsee. From there, you can already see the newly created path, the over the fields Scharte, past the salt places for the sheep down over steeper grassy slopes to a new natural spectacle, the White Lake. It is the largest and deepest of the four lakes and invites with its milky green color and its numerous rest areas for a short break for a break. Slowly it goes over a beautiful mountain trail from the White Lake to the lower Spitzig lake below. Nestled in a rugged mountain landscape, he rests there completely still and has a soothing charisma. From there you continue to the last of the four lakes, the Hauersee. Depending on the season, it shimmers milky green to turquoise. Surrounded by the so-called Fünffingerspitzen you can once again briefly enjoy the pleasant tranquility of the 2300 vertical meters before you begin the descent.   On the way down, the Hauerkamm towards Innerbergalm offers a fantastic view of the Innerbergtal and the Hauertal. At the top of this ridge is the Wöckelwarte, from which you can let your gaze wander over Längenfeld. From there it goes through a charming pine forest back to the lush alpine pastures and fields just before the Innerbergalm. The descent is like the ascent via the trail back to Lehn.   


Author’s recommendation

The hut taxi runs in the summer season every Tuesday to the Stabelealm. Thus you spare yourself a climb of about 2 hours. Reservations are required until 17.00 on Monday.
