The tour starts at the pass summit Niederalpl. The path leads behind the inn Plodererhof slightly uphill until after about 10 minutes a forest road is reached, then after another 10 minutes you come to the Wetterinalm with the first refreshment option (Wetterinhütte, info at Tel.: +43 (0) 3882 2366. From the Wetterinalm it goes along a forest road leisurely about 40 minutes further to the Weißalm with another refreshment option (Weißalmhütte, Tel.: +43 (0) 676/72 45 037).
From the Weißalm, the trail continues along a road for about 20 minutes until you finally reach the alpine pasture at Ochsenboden. There is also a refreshment stop at Ochsenboden. From Ochsenboden the trail continues along a forest path for another 30 minutes to Herrenboden (Sennhütte on Herrenboden, Tel.: +43 (0) 676/325 41 50).
After the Herrenboden hut, do not follow the well-trodden path straight on, but branch off to the right through the meadow until you see a stone wall in the forest. (the path is not so easy to find, it is best to ask for the way again at the hut, where you will receive accurate and friendly information :) ).
When you reach the stone wall, follow the red markings along the path (after about 15 minutes lookout point with a beautiful view of the Dürriegelalm), which always appear in the distance until you come to a fence, where the path divides: either up to the left or down to the right. To the Dürriegelalm you continue to the right. This narrow path now leads somewhat steeper downhill (ATTENTION: very stony path, partly slippery and muddy!!) until you come out again on a large meadow. Now it goes the last piece along the meadow to the Dürriegelalm, which you can already see in the distance. Walking time from Herrenboden to the Dürriegelalm is about 45 minutes. At the Dürriegelalm there is now the last opportunity to stop for refreshments (Sennhütte on the Dürriegel, Tel.: +43 (0) 676/34 20 103).
Now a forest road leads along a beautiful alpine landscape and the Falbersbachalm to Schöneben. From the Dürriegelalm to Schöneben the walking time is about 40 minutes, it goes continuously downhill.
