Description

Starting point for the summer path which runs parallel is the mountain station for the two-seater chairlift, the Sternalm (1505m). Along the meadow (which is a piste in the winter) climb uphill. After the right turn, cross the meadow as quickly as possible. The so-called "Märchensteig" starts at the "Hubertussee" reservoir.

Signposts on the trees (a yellow triangle with a red edge) assist with exact path location.

At half-way, around 1780m, you come to a nice shelter, before you disappear again into the deep forested area and just before Hochsteinhütte come to open terrain again.
