This high trail goes from the Seegrubenalm to the Spitzneralm alpine pastures; it runs along the shady side of the Val d'Ultimo (Ultental) Valley, much of it through dense woods.

Ascent: From Santa Valpurga (St.Walburg) in Ultimo (Ulten) at 1,131 metres, access the valley along the valley road for about 20 minutes, until you reach the dam of Zoggler Stausee Reservoir (1,093 m, bus stop); cross the causeway to the southern side of the valley, and continue into the valley along a broad riverside path until Trail No. 20 branches off to the left; continue through the woods up this path, which is quite steep, to Seegrubenalm alpine farm (1,916 m); about 2.5 hours from Santa Valpurga. High Trail: from the Seegrubenalm alpine farm, follow Trail No. 23, which is a mostly flat trail across steep forested slopes. Head east over to some mountain huts situated in a small small clearing in the forest: Pfandlalm (1,838 m; 1 hour; you can cut the hike short here and return to Santa Valpurga: Trail M 21). From there, head east across the steep forested slopes again, twice over steps, shortly up and down, and finally a mostly flat crossing to the mountain huts of Spitzneralm
