Let's start at Almhof Rupp. The tarred road quickly turns into a gravel road that goes steeply upwards. At the mountain station of the Kessler lift, follow the narrow path through the meadow to the Wassertretbecken Schwand. Turn right before the treading basin and follow the path upwards. About a root path, it is now briskly up. After about 20-25 minutes you reach the Riezler Alp. Here follow the path to the right to Gehrenspitze. Descend over the same way or continue towards Kanzelwandbahn and over Speichersee and gun barrel back to the Riezler Alp and from there to Riezlern to the casino and easy run out to the starting point.
