The starting point for the parallel summer trail is the mountain station of the two-seater chairlift, the Sternalm (1505 m). Climb uphill along the meadow (piste in winter). After the right-hand loop, cross the meadow as quickly as possible. The so-called "Märchensteig" (fairytale trail) begins at the "Hubertussee" reservoir.
Red-white-red markings on the ground help you to find the exact trail.
Halfway up, at approx. 1780 m, you come across a nice shelter before continuing the ascent over open terrain to the Hochstein hut.
