Turn-by-turn directions

Follow the forest road at the beginning until just before the mountain hut Faltmaralm, then continue across the valley floor in wide loops in a westerly direction, across numerous upturns to the summit area, which is relatively steep. On the peak, a pyramid has been constructed, which offers protection from inclement weather. The view from here is fantastic.
Descent: the summit slope is a bit rocky, but from here one can enjoy a fantastic ski-descent if enough snow is available. Pick up speed at the end of the valley, because the terrain here heading towards the Alpine farm is relatively flat.
