Directions


From the eastern part of Santa Valpurga in Val d’Ultimo (St. Walburg in Ulten) at an elevation of 1,131 metres, follow trail markings (No. 21/22) and signs for Spitzneralm. You’ll take a narrow road down to a stream, which you’ll cross on a wide bridge (1,031 m) and continue to the south-facing foothills. From there, keep following signs for Spitzneralm and trail markings (No. 22) along a trail/route through forested slopes. It is a mostly steep ascent (you repeatedly cross the access road, but don’t take it any further) up to the tree line. From there, you’ll go briefly across meadowland and then reach the mountain hut of the Spitzneralm alpine pasture (1,847 m; serves food); 2.5 hours from Santa Valpurga. Recommended Descent: briefly back on the route of ascent until Trail No. 22A branches off to the left. Follow these trail markings west through the woods, down to a small alpine pasture hut called Holzschlag (1,571 m). From there, continue along a path (No. 21), pretty much straight down, to a bridge over the stream and back to Santa Valpurga; 1.5 hours from Spitzneralm.
