From Saltusio (Saltaus) in the Outer Val Passiria (Passeiertal) Valley (490 m), take the Hirzer cable car up to the intermediate station at the hamlet of Obertall (1,375 m; you can also drive to this point; tavern). Continue on the cable car up to the Klammeben summit station (1,980 m; tavern). From there, the trail is clear (marked No. 40) and descends first down steps over rocky terrain, and then across slopes over to the Hirzerhütte mountain hut (1,983 m; Tallner Alm Tavern). From there, head up to the old Tallner-Alm-Hütte mountain hut (2,017 m), then on a good, pretty trail (marked No. 1), partly across alpine pastureland and partly through larch forests, on a mostly flat, hour-long hike over to the old, rustic wooden hut of the Hintereggalm alpine pasture (1,990 m; serves food). From there, following signs for Tall along Trail No. 2: it’s a short descent down to the hut of the Mahdalm alpine pasture (1,990 m; also serves food). Then you’ll cross some steep larch stands for a while and up to a little notch then down behind it to Gampenalm (1,808 m; serves food). From there, continue through the woods down to Obertall, partly on the old footpath and partly along a wide forest road.
