Turn-by-turn directions

The snowshoe hike leads from Frondeigen/Franadega first on the forest road no. 24 in a few hairpin bends towards the north. At the end of this path the forest becomes lighter and the tour continues to the Schuheralm hut (closed). In a north-north-east direction, the tour continues initially relatively flat up to a cross with a bench next to it, then steeper to the next hill, from which the summit is clearly visible. Shortly before the summit, it gets a little steeper again.
