Around the 1.4 km long walk you will find information about the legendary mining history of Ursprungalm and the Giglachseen Lakes. Moreover there is a small exhibition about the shooting of a "Heidi" movie in 1988 (starring Charlie Sheen in a main part) and about the geologic features of the chalk stone of the Steirischer & Lungauer Kalkspitze mountains. After the short walk the Ursprungalm chalet invites for a rest.
Alternatively you can drive into Preuneggtal valley from Schladming via Rohrmoos. From Schladming you take provincial highway L722 through Rohrmoos and after about 6 kms you turn off right into Hohenbergstraße road. This road will also take you to Strickbrücke road. From here follow the directions as described above.
The trail starts at Ursprungalm chalet and you first head towards West to the small brook, which is the Preuneggbach. You follow the trail through the cirque. About half-way, ambitiours mountaineers turn-off right towards Brotrinnl and Steirische Kalkspitze (5-6 hour tour, difficult hike), while you keep walking along the edge of the cirque below the impressive face of the Steirische Kalkspitze. The trail takes you back to your starting point at Ursprungalm in a total walking time of about 35 minutes.
