Tour by Raimund Gietl. From the car park, take the toboggan run up to the 3 alpine huts (Innerhofer, Marxegger and Pircher Alm).

Between Innerhofer Alm and Marxegger Hütte, the Sommersteig trail, which is quite steep in the lower part, joins the toboggan run again. Continue on this track until just below the Pircher Alm. About 100 m before the bridge to the Pircher Alm „you“ discover the inconspicuous sign „Zur Henne“ or „Gorner Jöchl“ on a tree, so you leave the toboggan run and trudge into the valley on the orographic right side (Mark. 25).

From the Joch onwards, the mountain panorama is magnificent. At the Joch, you turn left and trudge üacross
