From the Unterstell mountain station, first take trail no. 24B to the first fork. Then continue on trail no. 24B in the direction of Galmein (1395 m).

The trail now continues to the 1000-step gorge.

First an easy descent through the forest and then up to Gehöft Giggelberg (1572 m). Descent to Rabland with the Texel cable car. From the valley station take the bus back to Naturno.
