The route uphills never becomes very steep or challenging, as you simply follow the gravel road. At times you have the opportunity to cut a corner, but you the trail will always bringe you back to the road.

Therefor this hike is ideal if you want to spend time with your friends and enjoy the wonderful forest to the fullest at the same time. The driveway leads you uphill through the so called Kraftwald forest whose name already guarantees a strengthening experience.

On the Ochsenalm marvelous mountain pastures are waiting as you left the tree line behind. Enjoy the extensive landscape with its far-reaching panorama-view including the Serles (2717m), the Habicht (3277m) and the prominent peak of the Pflerscher Tribulaun (3097m) in the south-west.

If you have some energy left the Pfoner Kreuzjöchl offers the opportunity for a rewarding peak just about an hour away.
