From Obervierschach, the route for speedhikers (mountain runners) goes up to the mountain station of the cable car on the Helm.

From the valley station, walk along the car park in the direction of San Candido. At the end of the car park, turn left uphill (trail no. 4B) to the Hotel Chalet Post Alpina. The trail leads through the middle of the hotel village and then up through the meadows to the edge of the forest and the ski slope. You now climb briefly along the ski slope until the path branches. At the fork, do not follow trail no. 4B, which continues to the right, but go straight on (signposted) up through the forest. This takes you to the large ski slope (building) coming down from the Helm. Continue briefly uphill on the side track to the right of the small forest island until you reach a natural road, which you follow to the left until you reach the main track. The path branches off to the right (signpost) and continues through the forest until it joins a track. The trail crosses the piste and continues on the opposite side through the forest to finally meet trail no. 4, which takes you up to the top
