Turn-by-turn directions

There are two ways to start this hike: preferably from the parking area just before the Fane Alm (1,735 m). Otherwise, lower down from the Kurzkofelhütte mountain hut (1,422 m), which adds another hour to the ascent.From the Fane parking area (1,735 m) the forest track soon leads to the Almdorf cluster of huts (an old-style mountain village with log-cabins) on the Fane Alm (1,739 m). Trail no. 17 leads through the Schramme gorge towards the valley. Just after passing the gorge to the left, follow trail no. 18 along the Seebach brook and past the Labesebenalm mountain hut (2,138 m) to the head of the valley. Head north on a wide curve to reach the Wilde See lake (2,532 m). At the lake outflow, continue along trail no. 18 on the steep incline up to the Rauhtaljoch ridge (2,807 m) to the right of the slope. From the ridge, proceed on trail no. 18 (or if necessary, following the visible snow tracks) as it winds its way across the southern slope to a sloped terrace before turning left at the ridge to the summit of the Wilde Kreuzspitze (3,132 m). At the summit, take a rest before returning back to the Rauhtaljoch ridge. From there turn left across a moraine scree (possibly still covered in snow) in a northerly direction. The descent is more difficult as it crosses steep, rugged terrain before reaching the fields of the high valley. The trail finally turns east to the Brixner Hütte mountain hut (2,282 m).The descent is on trail no. 17, through the gorge to the Fane Alm and back to the parking area.
