NIEDERTHAI -> car park Sennhof -> Larstigalm -> Klein Horlachalm -> Groß Horlachalm -> Schweinfurter Hut -> ZWIESELBACHALM
The hike starts in Niederthai at the car park Sennhof. From there you follow the always slightly rising forest path along the Horlachbach into the Horlachtal. After about an hour you reach the Larstigalm and walk comfortably past it. The path leads up a little steeper and then flat on to a bridge. There you either follow the forest path past the Klein Horlachalm and Groß Horlachalm or the narrow summer hiking trail directly in front of the bridge on the right through open terrain to the Schweinfurter hut. From there you walk into the Zwieselbachvalley and after about 20 minutes you reach the Zwieselbachalm. This Alm is not managed. You can still think about it, if you would like to stop on the Larstigalm, the Klein Hoarlachalm or the Schweinfurt hut when ascending or descending. From the starting point in Niederthai or for the way back, there are as an alternatively offer the two mountain trails Grastal- and Bergmahderweg.
