Begin at the car park in Wolfsbachtal. From here go right on trail no. 10, which leads through Wolfsbachtal to Sternspitze. Sternspitze is Rennweg’s local mountain. Upon reaching the summit you’re rewarded with a majestic view. Return via the same route.

Version 2: you can also reach Sternspitze from St. Peter, via Peitleralm ridge and Stammpatzspitz (day tour).
