Cheerful mood at the extensive breakfast on the farm Ascherbauer-Grandner. Here we were in very good hands.
We leave our pilgrim hostel in the early morning.
Shortly after our hostel at the Ascherbauer, a meadow path to the left leads up to the Jakobsweg.
Click on the sign!

We pass the Kneip facility. It's still too cool to step in the water, and we want to go all the way to St. Johann.
Soon Waidring with its beautiful farmhouses comes into sight.
A pilgrim shortly after Waidring, after having seen the last "Jakobsweg Tirol" (Way of St.James Trol) sign for a long time.
Probably we did not walk on the Way of St. James. We simply followed the hiking trail signs Erpfendorf.
In the picture the mountain 'Steinplatte'. From Waidring there is a cable car up there.
Our way leads over lonely meadow paths.
We pass a small chapel ...
... and soon enjoy the view of the Wilder Kaiser.
At the edge of the forest our way leads uphill and downhill towards Erpfendorf.
After we have crossed a ski slope, we see the hotel facilities of the Lärchenhof.
Unfortunately we miss the direct way to Erpfendorf and visit the Giessbachklamm (gorge).
This is definitely not on the Jakobsweg.
After the gorge we see a sign "Erpfendorf 15 Minuten" every 300 m. The 15 minutes do not become less.
Probably they bought this sign a dozen times and got it cheaper.
Finally the sign Erpfendorf comes. It seems like a redemption to us.
The church of Erpfendorf is more recent and was designed by Clemens Holzmeister.
An old farmhouse in need of renovation at the end of Erpfendorf.
Soon after Erpfendorf the path meets the river Grossache.
The path is endlessly long and runs along the Grossache river. Kirchdorf comes into sight.
Nepomuk Chapel near Kirchdorf
In the chapel St. Nepomuk is depicted in a glass window.
An Ex Voto board shows a mini Mariahilf picture..
Hurray, we see the church towers of Sankt Johann in Tirol.
We cross the Fieberbrunner Ache and walk quite exhausted to the church in Sankt Johann in Tirol.
