This hike starts directly behind the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut and leads towards Sonnkarköpfl. The path zigzags ever higher up the mountain. After about 45 minutes, you reach the turnoff to the Sonnkarköpfl summit. Once the trail leaves the forest, it continues over barren terrain, first on a north-facing slope and later through a corrie on a south-western slope up to the summit.
 
From the Sonnkarköpfl peak, hike back the same way until you reach the turnoff to "Oberhofer Alm", which is marked with the direction "Osten" (east). This section takes you over vast fields of alpine roses and leads downhill for about 35 minutes to the Sonnkarhütte mountain hut (not open to the public, formerly the Neuburger Hütte). Follow the signpost to the Oberhof Melkalm mountain hut, which is another 30 minutes away over alpine meadows.
 
Finally, take the Bettlersteig trail that starts behind the hut and follow it back to the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut.
