Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking lot Heiligengeist you start in a pleasant gradient to the right of the former ski slope until from the right the so-called "family descent" tires in. Here you turn right and in a few minutes you reach the turn-off to path no. 291. After the forest ascent, the path leads back into the flat slope at Waagtal. From here, one follows the free areas in one's own choice of track and passes the unmanaged Ottohütte at 1543 m. Exactly 200 metres of altitude difference are from here to the Rosstratte with its panoramic views, which becomes a pleasure in easy terrain. The descent leads to the Waagtal via the ascent track. From Waagtal you can choose between the former V73 piste and the already mentioned family descent to return to the starting point.
