The "Kleine Arber" is located in the eastern part of the district Cham and is with its 1384 metres the highest mountain in the “Nature Park Upper Bavarian Forest". Only a few kilometres separate him from the king of the Bavarian Forest, the Großer Arber.
Like many other mountains of the ARBERLAND it consists of gneissic rock. Its rocky top is decorated with a wooden cross with summit log, the view ranges from the "Lamer Winkel" to the "Zellertal".
Many hiking paths lead to the Kleiner Arber amongst others from Bodenmais, from the Kleiner Arbersee or from Schareben. Furthermore, the "Fernwanderweg E6" leads from the Kaitersberg to the Falkenstein over the summit.
