For the hike back, you can either double back along the same route or follow the forest road.
Optional route extension to "Lacke" viewing platform (1,704 m): From the Lehnberghaus, a hiking trail leads uphill towards "Lacke", first climbing up through alpine meadows and then continuing through the forest. When you arrive at Lacke, you'll find a giant picture frame and an impressive viewing platform with views that stretch far along the Inn Valley and over the Mieming Plateau.
Duration from the Lehnberghaus (one-way): about 30 minutes
Optional route extension to "Wankspitze" summit (2,209 m / difficult): This additional section leads from the Lacke viewing platform to Wankspitze peak. Hike north along the wooded ridge and follow the trail as it snakes upwards and finally follows the final ridge right up to the summit cross. The Wankspitze is located in front of the rugged peaks of the Mieming Range and displays high alpine character. It offers fantastic views over the Mieming Plateau and the Inn Valley to Innsbruck. To the south, you can see the Stubai Alps.
Duration from the Lacke viewing platform (one-way): about 1.5 hours.
