Quality of experience: ***

The stage from Hinterstoder station leads to the Klaus reservoir and to Frauenstein. It offers different variants and possibilities for side trips.
Trail number: 409, Fischersteig
From Hinterstoder train station the trail leads along the 409 to Frauenstein.
After the railroad underpass we cross the Teichl, go past the settlement Helml to the clearing Pernkopf and cross the Vorderen Rettenbach. At the houses of Spering a detour to the natural monument Teufelskirche is possible. Continue past the houses of Traunfried to the Helmlalm. On a gravel road we go along the Klaus reservoir and from the Klaus dam we follow the Steyr downstream to Frauenstein.
Alternatively, from the settlement at the Steyr bridge, in nice and dry weather, the Fischersteig with the Elisabethsee is a beautiful variant close to the water.
Detour to the natural monument Devil's Church
For beginners in long-distance hiking and pilgrimage we recommend a shortened enjoyment variant from Hinterstoder train station on the Fischersteig trail to Klaus.
