The Großhorn is a rewarding mountain peak to the east above St. Valentin.

In the northern part of St. Valentin auf der Haide (1470 m), always follow the signs for "Großhorn" and marker 6, first between the houses and then, for the most part, through larch stands, climbing moderately eastwards to the actual foot of the mountain (trail split with signposts), Turn right here and continue on trail 6 in numerous serpentines through the very steep forest on the mountain ridge up to the "Bergl" (2176 m) and continue, leaving the forest behind you, on trail 6 over the free ridge ridge first moderately, then more steeply uphill to the summit of the Großhorn (2630 m); from the starting point 3 hrs.). The descent is best done on the described ascent path in 2 hours.
