At the road junction Wildalpen to Hinterwildalpen, the trail begins after 200m on the right uphill. It goes through a wooded area up to Poschenhöh and the trail leads up along the wooded side of the stream. It is worth taking a look at Gr. Griesstein, Gr. Ebenstein and Schaufelwand here; because they are about to disappear. The gravel road leads up a bit and branches off entirely to the left into the forest. This is a difficult path that is not suitable for everyone. The forest path leads steadily along the slope. Past a dilapidated alpine pasture, logging and dense forest, you come to the saddle, where you have a wonderful view of the Hochschwab mountains and even as far as the Hochschwab. From there, a forest road leads down to Hinterwildalpen. There are wonderful views at the bends and on warm summer days you can visit the Hinterwildalpen forest pool.

The high-level trail is only suitable for hiking in dry weather and not at all in winter.
