Beautiful alpine path for experienced hikers

Via forest paths you reach an alpine pasture with a beautiful larch forest and ancient trees. Over a few serpentines the hiking trail leads you along blooming alpine bush in early summer to the Zwieflerseen. After about 1 hour of walking you will reach the plateau. The high moor leads you to the first lake.

Passing a small waterfall, you will come closer and closer to the Upper Zwieflersee via a second high moor. Go straight along the luminous marking towards a gravel gully. Always upwards you will pass the second Zwieflersee and reach the Grad. The ascent is quite steep and sometimes a bit difficult to walk on due to the huge stone blocks. At the fork in the path, you have the choice of taking the alpine ridge trail for those who are free from giddiness and experienced, or the normal ascent to the summit.

The descent is via the same path. After your summit assault you have earned a refreshment in the rustic Kreuzerhütte. Perhaps you will still catch a homemade delicacy.

The best period for this tour is from May to October or in November if the weather is nice - depending on the weather conditions.
