There we cross the federal road B71 and follow the hiking trail 292 along a forest road up to the Köckensattel and over the Ochsenboden to the Feldhüttelsattel. Now we continue along the main ridge the first forest hilltop ("Feldhüttel") immediately, first very steeply to the Oischingkogel and already above the tree line to the summit of the Vorderer Zellerhuts.

An excellent view awaits us!

Important note: it gets steep at the end and the path becomes narrow, so only sure-footed hikers with good footwear should tackle this section.

Great view of Mariazell - don't forget your camera! .
