The Platschjoch high altitude trail lies below the Jaufenpass in the Ratschings ski area.

The high altitude track Platschjoch starts under the top station of the cable car Ratschings-Jaufen at the valley station of the chair lift Rinneralm (3 min. walk). We head towards Kalcheralm, first across meadows and then onto the forest road. Passing the Kalcheralm and following the forest road to Jaufenpassstraße. This is crossed and a bit further on until you reach the Platschjoch. On a loop back and on the way to the Rinneralm. From there it is only a short walk to the starting point.
