The hike from Imst through the Rosengarten Gorge is a beautiful and varied tour. From the information office in Imst, to the left of St. John's Church, you walk along the Schinderbach stream into the Rosengarten Gorge. There you walk on a secured path through the gorge. There are always impressive views of the Schinderbach. At the bridge, continue in the direction of "Hoch-Imst". Shortly before Hoch-Imst you can make a worthwhile detour to the Blue Grotto. Then follow the path further uphill, past the natural lake, to Hoch-Imst. After the parking lot, continue in the direction of the "Wetterkreuz" and always follow the path in this direction, downhill. From the so-called "Wetterkreuz" you have a beautiful view into the Gurgltal valley. Then follow the hiking trail back to Imst. The Rosengarten Gorge can be visited free of charge at any time from about mid-May until the onset of winter.
