Close to it - above the Weißenbacheralm, 1200 m - the uphill forest road leads to the Kulmspitzsattel. Shortly before it, a driveway goes uphill. At the fence there is a tree on whose trunk the name "Thörl" is visible. This is a boundary marker. Follow the fence uphill and cross a crossing at the level of boundary stone no. 65, approx. 1480m. A now clear path leads to the forest border and summit meadow. A few rocks and the summit cross mark the highest point on the Floning.
