In the village center of Gries you turn off to the south, over the wooden bridge to the edge of the forest. The trail leads steeply through the forest in the height to the Nissl Alm. A more comfortable, but longer access to the hut can be found in the forest track, which turns right at the entrance of the Sulztales. Arriving at the Nisslalm, the trail leads past the hut to the wonderfully situated lake. The trail leads west past the hut, then steeper over overgrown slopes up into Schönrinnenkar and over two further steps to the lake. Return on the same route.

Author’s recommendation

Bronze relief section of the Ötztal Nature Park at the start of the trail: Here you can learn about the habitat "Wild Water" or the history of Gries.
