Starting in Lüsens, follow the road along the Melach river until the head of the Lüsens Valley. Leave the cable car building (freight haulage only) and the hostel building behind, turn right and begin the steep ascent through copses of native forest to the Längental pasture with its alpine huts. Continue your hike beneath the mighty rock faces and rugged bluffs of the Lüsener Fernerkogel. After having crossed the Längental river, the path climbs to the north towards the hut.
Return: on the Sommerweg trail you traverse several trenches as you hike along the mountain flanks. From there the trail leads you through forest and mountain pines back to your starting point.
