This hike starts just above the bottom station of the Nordkettenbahn cable car. Head northeast through the village for a short distance before taking the first left onto a forest trail. Shortly afterwards, the trail crosses the Rosnerweg path and continues uphill. The route leads through areas of mixed forest and various glades to the Arzler Alm mountain hut (1,067 metres). From there, continue west along the forest road until you reach the first large intersection. Turn right and follow the signs to the Höttinger Alm mountain hut (1,487 metres). This section has fantastic views of the valley below.
Culinary tips: Both of the mountain huts offer typical local dishes and excellent Tyrolean cuisine.
Another route option is to start from Sadrach (bus stop for the A bus) and follow the trail past the Planötzenhof restaurant, past Höttinger Bild chapel and up through the forest to the Höttinger Alm mountain hut. It is well-worth making a short stop at the Höttinger Bild pilgrimage site. This small mountain chapel is hidden deep in the forest next to a picturesque fountain.
