From the middle station, the hike sets off west towards the Seppl hut, where you can eat Carinthian specialties and hang out in their comfy patio chairs on the sun terrace.  After this short rest, you head in the direction of the village of Schönfeld and Jacob's Ladder (Noreia Himmelsleiter on signs) to Mountain Resort Feuerberg.  From there you take a pleasant hike back to the starting point.
