Turn-by-turn directions

The start of this challenging hike is at the mountain station of the Plose gondola lift in Kreuztal/Valcroce (2,050 m). The gondola lift brings hikers from St. Andrä/S. Andrea to the Plose above Brixen and is open from mid-May to the end of October. Follow trail no. 7/30 from the mountain station of the gondola lift to the top of the forest line and turn right onto trail no. 7. Continue along a clearly defined trail and across the slopes to the Schönjöchl ridge (2,250 m) before arriving at the Plosehütte mountain shelter (2,446 m). From there, follow trail no. 6 north past some buildings, to the first summit of the tour. The Telegraph (2,486 m) has a broad, flat summit and panoramic views.  

Return to Plosehütte and follow trail no. 7 down a slight incline along the ridge in an easterly direction to the Lüsner Scharte ridge (2,371 m). Follow the safety fence on the via ferrata along trail no. 7 to the Große Pfannspitze peak (2,545 m), which is the second summit of the tour. Continue eastwards along the top of the ridge up to the Kleine Gabler, the trail either crosses over the peak or turns right onto the ridge for the short ascent to the Grosse Gabler. Continue across the rocky terrain along the flat ridge to the third summit: the Grosse Gabler (2,575 m). From this main summit of the Plose, one is treated to a veritable Alpine wonderland: a 360° panoramic view.

To return, head south along the mountain track on trail no. 7 to the mountain pasture trail (2,320 m) and then west following trail no. 14 to the Rossalm mountain hut (2,180 m), for a rest stop. From there, it is an easy hike to the mountain station of the gondola lift at Kreuztal.
