By car you drive about 2.5 km along the Grieser Landstraße. This can be parked in a small parking bay. At the beginning you follow a short piece of the forest road which you soon leave on the right and follow a trail. At an altitude of about 1600m you meet again on the forest road which you now follow a few bends. The path is well marked from the beginning and therefore the turnoff to the Kochler - Hörndle can not be missed. Now it goes quite steeply through a beautiful mixed forest upwards. Above the tree line you reach the destination of this hike - the Kochler. A small meadow plateau with a magnificent view of the Sulztal - what invites you to rest.

 

Author’s recommendation

Experienced hikers with mountain experience can still tackle the ascent to Hörndle. (Exposed passages, ridge)
