Walking and facilitiesEdit
Numerous footpaths lead to the top of the Kleiner Arber, including from Bodenmais, the lake of Kleiner Arbersee or from Schareben. In addition, the E6 European long distance path runs from the Kaitersberg to the Falkenstein over the summit.
To the east and just below the top is the Chamer Hut. It was built in 1952 by the Cham branch of the Bavarian Forest Club and run as a restaurant. In 1956, it was taken over by the German Youth Hostel Association who converted it into a youth hostel. It was closed in 1999, but re-opened on 20 December 2008 as a mountain hut.
