Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point for this circular hike is the mountain station of the Vigiljoch Cable Car. Following trail no. 34 the route takes us along a gentle incline up through the forest to the little church of St. Vigilius. It then continues along trail no. 9 with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains to the Schwarze Lacke mountain lake. The return route follows the - in places somewhat narrow - trail no. 7, which takes us back to our starting point.
