Von der Mittelstation der Gaislachkoglbahn führt ein breiter Schotterweg hinauf über die Skipiste zum Gaislachkogl. Dort wo die Almwiesen blühen, trifft man auf heimische Weidetiere wie Schafe, Kühe und Pferde. Entlang der idyllischen Berghänge, die im Winter als Skipiste kaum wiederzuerkennen sind, führt der Weg hinauf und über das Wasserkar zum Gaislachkogl. Diese schöne, mittelschwierige Wanderung bietet ein authentisches Bergerlebnis mit einer grandiosen Aussicht entlang der Strecke
