Turn-by-turn directions

ALONG SEUFERTWEG IN THE FOOTHILLS OF WILDSPITZE

From Vernagthütte you walk down and continue on a trail that branches off to the left, descending towards Vernagtbach brook. From here you enjoy superb views of Großer Vernagtferner glacier including Hochvernagtspitze to the north/northwest. Cross Vernagtbach brook and continue to the flat meadows on opposite Platteiberg slope towering high above Rofental valley.
The trail crosses Platteikar cirque and rolls up and down through Mitterkar. Just above Mitterkar you can see Ötztal’s Wildspitze, which looks unusually rocky from this angle. From here it’s only a few more meters down to the refuge hut that affords fabulous views of Kreuzspitze, Hochjochferner in thesouth-west and majestic Weißkugel.
