Am Eingang zum Naturpark Ammergauer Alpen liegt das Hörnle, der Hausberg Bad Kohlgrubs. Es besteht aus drei Gipfeln: Vorderes Hörnle (1484 m), Mittleres Hörnle (1496 m) und Hinteres Hörnle (1548 m).

The tour begins at the car park near the Hörnle ski lift and runs parallel to the lift road. You will meet a forest road, which you then follow in a south-easterly direction to the Ebmahd.

After about 2.5 kilometres, branch off to the right and follow a further hiking trail uphill towards the Hinteres Hörnle (do not proceed via the Elmauberg, this route is closed off!)

You arrive at the mountain station of the Hörnle ski lift and the Hörnle Hut via the Mittleres and Vorderes Hörnle.

The return route is via the family downhill ski run towards Sonnen. From Sonnen, return to the foot of the Hörnle and to your starting point at the Hörnlebahn ski lift.
