Along the Goethetrail to Pfeishütte
that takes you to the northern face of the Nordkette mountain range. From there you climb back up to Mandlscharte, take a short descent down to the vast meadows and mountain pines before you arrive at
the Pfeishütte refuge (1,922 m).
Route option 1: Hike from Pfeishütte via Kreuzjöchl to Rumer Alm (1.243 m), from there to Enzianhütte
(1.041 m) and make your descent to Rum.
Route option 2: Leave Pfeishütte behind and follow the gravel slopes up to Stempeljoch
saddle. Hike down from the incision but keep your height as the path turns right into an open larch forest. Continue towards Issjöchl before reaching the first house on the Halltal road. Continue on the
road or take a short-cut past several huts that remain from the days of salt mining and the Herrenhäuser mining mansions. At the nearby Isstal car park turn right for Alpengasthof St. Magdalena. Take a taxi
bus down the Halltal and on to Absam (bus connection to Innsbruck).
Approximate Hiking Time for the whole round is 4.5 Hours.
