Now follow the mark 24 A through the meadows and past the Larcherhof farm on a wide path up to the forest (approx. 1400 m) and cross it almost flatly northwards to the highest farms of Vernuer, namely Unter- and Oberöberst (1392 m, both with a snack station; from the Walde inn approx. 0:45 hrs). From there on footpath 5 (Kirchsteig) via the Hienderer and Prünster farms down to the little church and inn “Brunner” (1100 m) and continue on path 5 partly through meadows, partly through woodland and past isolated farms, always following the signs “Riffian” in a largely medium-steep descent down to Riffian,
