The route starts directly in Lesach and proceeds via Oberlesach on a forest trail, some 2 ½ hours walk to the Lesachriegel. It is somewhat strenuous from here, however it is recommended for good, surefooted hikers, taking some 2 hours to get up to the Schönleitenspitze (2810m, far-reaching, superb viewing point to the surrounding mountain groups and into Kalser Tal). The descent to the Lesachalmhütte is somewhat steep, with lots of metres altitude to cover and is therefore only recommended for fit hikers. Please remember to factor in walking times from and into the valley and to bring food with you – the Alpine lodges are not open for business.
