The tour starts at the summit of the Niederalpl pass.
The trail leads slightly uphill behind the "http://www.plodererhof.at "Gasthof Plodererhof until after about 10 minutes you reach a forest road, then after another 10 minutes you reach the Wetterinalm with the first stop (Wetterinhütte, Tel.: +43 (0) 664 127 68 47).
From the Wetterinalm you continue along a forest road for about 40 minutes to the Weißalm with a further stopover (Weißalmhütte, Tel.: +43 (0) 676/72 45 037). From the Weißalm, the trail continues along a road for about 20 minutes until you finally reach the alpine pasture floor at Ochsenboden.
At the Ochsenboden there is also a place to stop for a bite to eat.
From Ochsenboden you walk along a forest path for a further 30 minutes to Herrenboden (Sennhütte auf dem Herrenboden, Tel.: +43 (0) 676/325 41 50). After the Herrenboden hut, do not follow the well-trodden path straight ahead, but turn right through the meadow until you see a stone wall in the forest.
(the way is not so easy to find, it's best to ask at the hut for the way again, where you can get an exact and friendly information :) Once you have reached the stone wall, follow the red markings along the path (after about 15 minutes you will reach a viewpoint with a beautiful view of the Dürriegelalm), which always appear in the distance until you come to a fence where the path divides: either up to the left or down to the right.
This narrow path now leads a little steeper downhill (ATTENTION: very stony path, partly slippery and muddy!!) until you come out again on a large meadow.
Now it goes the last part along the meadow up to the Dürriegelalm, which you can already see in the distance.
Walking time from Herrenboden to Dürriegelalm is about 45 minutes.
At the Dürriegelalm there is now the last stop for refreshments (Sennhütte auf dem Dürriegel, Tel.: +43 (0) 664/819 77 07). Now a forest road leads along a beautiful alpine pasture landscape and the Falbersbachalm to Schöneben.
The walking time from Dürriegelalm to Schöneben is approx.
40 minutes, the whole way downhill.
