Isolated, steep, with a marvellous view… Ascending the Schaufler is exhausting and steep. The advantage, however, is that even in high season you will not come across many people so you can enjoy the silence and the solitude. From the Hochlärcher Wasen alpine pasture, there is a steep narrow path to the peak of the Schaufler where you have a stunning view of the surrounding mountains. On top you must be sure-footed and you can not suffer from vertigo. For experienced hikers, however, the tour is easy.

Turn-by-turn directions

From San Giovanni-St. Johann, at the crossroads near Hotel Steinpent, we turn left and drive up the road to the first road forking where we turn left heading towards Platterhof. At the Reichegger farms, shortly before the Platterhof, we take the road to the left leading to the Hochlärcher farm at 1,360 m. There is no marked parking space so we must be sure to not block the road with parked cars or, if possible, we can ask the farmer if we can leave the car there. Now we proceed northwards into the woods, either following the forest road, or taking the shorter but steeper path nr. 12 in order to arrive at the Hochlärcher Wasen (2,031 m). In the south-western part of the alpine pasture you will find the path leading up to the summit cross of the Schaufler at 2,265 m. Take the same route on the way back. If you wish to do the tour without a car, you can start in the valley basin in Mühlegg near the Tengghof, follow path nr. 12 to the Platterhof and then to the Hochlärcherhof farm (an additional 1 ¾ hrs. of walking time and an extra 360m difference in altitude).
