From the tourist office, the route takes us a short distance uphill along the main raod, before branching left into the Kreuzsalgasse at the church beyond Cafe-Restaurant Olympia. The trail continues steadily uphill and, after about 500 meters, turns right into the Steineggweg, which will lead us to the Ennskraxn cafe. This is where the supply road ends. There now follows a beautiful forest path, taking us through the Steinkargraben and reaching a forestry road in about 1km. We will ony be on this road for a matter of meters, before we take a right back into the forest. The larch forest becomes ever sparser and we are able to see the Ennskraxn. Once again back on the forestry road, it´s now just a short distance to the Steinkaralm.
The supply road becomes narrower and narrower, until finally ending beneath the saddle (elev. 1832m). It´s now just a short stretch and we´ll reach the higth ridge which the Almenweg follows to the end of this stage (superb views in all directions along this segment). We can already pick out our next refreshment opportunity, the 'Weissenhofalm.
We now continue without any major climbs, past the Wildbehühel and Mooskoopf to the summit station of the Kleinarl mountain lifts. Here there is an opportunity to shorten the tourby taking the chair lift.
The Almenweg, however, runs past the lift, the somewhat downhill along a supply road to the Frauenalmsattel. At this point a steep trail branches off uphill to the left and circles the Ahornkarkopf until it comes to a trail fork. We then continue via the Saukarkopf and Saukartunktel to the summit station of the "Top Kiner" chair lift (runs only in winter/the flat Bettlersteig is less strenuous).
At the summit station o0f the chair lift there is an option to make our way via the Griessenkareck to the summit station of the "Flying Mozart", or contiune via the alpine cirque and past the Wagrainer Haus. Shortly beforehand, the trail makes a righand takes a broad arc, Climging gently to the Kogelalm. The descent to Wagrain can be made on the "Flying Mozart" lift (runs in summer, while we can make our way down to Flachau by lift as well.
