Through forest and meadows, from farm to farm

From the little village of Plaus (519 m), situated somewhat off the Vinschgau valley road between Töll and Naturns, first follow the road leading to Birchberg through the orchards south-eastwards to the foot of the mountain and the start of the trail with the marking number 30 A; now largely on this path and only for short stretches following the road through steep mixed forest, through meadows and through coniferous forest from farm to farm uphill; you first come to the Platzhof, then it goes up to the Pircher (snack station, 1075 m) and further to the Brunner (1160 m, also snack station); from Plaus just under 2:00 hrs. The highest farm is the Feichter (1210 m), which can be reached from the Brunner in a few minutes. Descent: best via the described ascent path (1:30 hrs); alternatives for independent hikers with a sense of direction may be taken from the map.
