“Beautiful gorge, fun hike for kids”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We picked up a brochure for the gorge at the salt mines the other day and are very glad we took the trouble to come back out here. It's a relatively short hike and totally accessible to kids (mine are 5 and 9) although some parts you may need to hold the hand on younger kids where there are some big steps and also if it's slippery, which it was today after the rain and also with the dripping from the rocks.

From the entrance point it is only five minutes walk to the Dark Gorge, which was a bit dark (!!) but beautiful. Then you pass the entrance again and can hike about thirty minutes along the gorge past some beautiful viewpoints including a bridge across the gorge. You can see rapids in several places and some small waterfalls and then at the bottom the still wide water.

It is a fun and varied hike but you need sturdy shoes as it is very uneven. There are wooden paths, stone steps, rocky bits, and also dirt paths. Also some parts on the wooden paths attached to rock outcroppings are not for the faint of heart. It looks to be very safe and well maintained; only one broken stair board and many obviously new stairs and rails in different places.

Bring snacks or eat first. They did serve some light snacks at the entrance but not sure you could make a meal of it. The bathrooms at the entrance were surprisingly clean and well equipped.

“beautiful and easy short track”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

This is a very nice short track. Takes about 40 min to 1 hour of a very leasurely walk. Good for young and old, fit and not-so-fit. The scenery is magnificent. The walls of the clam make it a bit intimidating. We saw the people in kayaks in the water, and it was very interesting.
A very nice experience, for the whole family.

“Really beautiful gorge- bright green waters”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

if you look up on google "dark gorge" you will see photos a photographer took of part of this gorge. It took me ages and actually contacting him to find out where this gorge is. I'm glad I took the trouble. If you venture south of Salzburg toward Italy and then turn off toward Golling and keep traveling east bound on the main road (instead of turning left into Golling) you will come upon it after about 15 minutes. The walk is not very challenging at all and if you walk slower and pay attention to your underfoot, you will have no issues. The water is very strong with lots of rapids during the first half and then the second half the water becomes much more calm and ends up a bright green gentle body of water at the end. Totally worth the views and being emerged in this natural wonder!
