Eagle Walk Stage 09: Lamsenjoch Hut - Falken Hut
This stage along the Adlerweg leads from the Lamsenjochhütte built in 1908 to the Falkenhütte at almost 2,000 metres. The tour crosses the "Grosse Ahornboden", a natural monument with more than 2,000 maples.
From Lamsenjoch Hut, retrace your steps from the ascent route until you reach the dip. From there, follow signage to “Binsalm” and “Falkenhütte”. The path takes you gently downhill along steep slopes past Lamsenspitze Peak towards western Lamsenjoch Saddle (elev. 1,940m). On the other side of the saddle, stroll down towards “Binsalpe” and “Eng”. The path soon merges with a dirt road, which leads through wide open terrain and past Binsalm-Hochleger. There are various opportunities for a shortcut if you take the footpaths.
Having passed Binsalm-Niederleger, follow the broad forest road along the deeply incised valley leading down to Eng Alpine Pasture Village (elev. 1,270m). Leave behind the last homes of Eng and follow the broad footpath to your right towards Falken Hut. The trail takes you gently uphill leading through meadows and mixed forest until you reach Hohljoch Col (elev. 1,794m). From the col you will traverse Laliderer Reisen on a well-maintained trail. A gradual and gentle climb will take you upward to Spielissjoch Saddleback. From there, a forest road brings you to Falken Hut, situated at an elevation of 1,848 metres.
