A somewhat longer (approx. +45 min.) variant of the tour is possible via Ahornweg road, the forestry lane Royer Ötz and the Schlapfer farm.
Walk along the sidewalk for about 300 meters to Hochwurzen, turn left and walk towards Obertal via Schussbühel and the meadows of Rohmooser Frei. Walking to the South the scenery transforms into that of an extensive alp.
While you walk towards Obertal valley you can enjoy the nice views to both, Untertal and Obertal valleys. At the Sonnleitner farm you reach the road junction Rohrmoos-Südweg road/Knappenweg road. You hike up the latter until you reach the Pocher farm. Hiking up over the meadow you reach the viewpoint of "Johannahöhe", which offers a great view to Obertal valley and towards the village Untertal.
After a short section through the forest you reach the beginning of the Mushroom Nature trail. Along the forestry road (to the right) you hike back down to Rohrmoos in about 25 minutes.
