This route follows the forest road, along an old and gradually ascending military route (easy route), with some Alpine terrain (individual snow fields are possible).
The crossing of the Eisjöchl ridge is only advised when the Stettiner Hütte Alpine hut is open (normally between 1 July – end of September, depending on weather conditions). Information about the opening hours can be obtained from the Schnalstal Valley tourist office or the Passeiertal Valley tourist office, which can also inform you about current conditions on the ridge.
The Stettiner Hütte was swept away by an avalanche in 2013/14. It was rebuilt in 2020/2021 and is expected to be in operation in summer 2022.
