The demanding hike starts in Huben / Mühle. At the beginning you cross the small bridge to the left and then take the wide forest road on your right hand side. Follow this road for a few hundred meters until a sidewalk branches off to the right. This leads up grassy through a swathe until you get back on the forest road. Until reaching the Polltalalm (Refreshments) are still some bends to deal with. Behind the pasture follow the path towards Polltal and turn right towards Breitlehnkogel. From here the path climbs steeply over a ridge up to the summit.

Author’s recommendation

In order to enjoy the magnificent view to the fullest, we recommend an early start, since the ascent takes quite a bit of time.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the starting point in Huben / Mühle follow the signs to Polltalalm. Since there are some hairpin bends to get to the hut, at the beginning you have to choose a shortcut which leads up through a swath. From the pasture, the trail still leads through alpine pastures, but changes rapidly into rougher ground. The ascent to the summit leads over a ridge.
