Via the toll road to the Hinterhornalm. Here begins the route to the Hundskopf 2.243m.

Starting from the parking lot we turn left and hike the path up. After 20 minutes we reach a steep path which brings us up the tree line.

From here on its rocky and you need a little bit more sure-footedness.  Now via the Felix-Kuen Via Ferrata up to the Hundskopf.
