Turn-by-turn directions

It is recommend that you start the tour from the car park near the Riedlerhof farm. Take the mostly steep but not too difficult marked trail no. 3 that leads through forest, boulders and rocky terrain to the wind gap where there is a wind shelter. Then make the ascent following trail no. 2 up to the cross on the Sarner Scharte summit. Next briefly descend through a small connecting saddle before making the easy, trouble-free ascent of the Villanderer Berg mountain.

Experienced hikers can return via the depression between the two peaks on the secured trail no. 18A down to the Waldrast hut and back to the starting point. Inexperienced hikers should descend via the same route as for the ascent.
