Trail head for this easy hike is the mountain terminal of Preunegg-Jet cable-car. From here you follow trail n° 66 passing by the lake. Walk across the alpine meadow into the clear forest and you will soon reach the turnoff (trail n° 66) for Untersee Lake.
Via a couple of switchbacks you hike downhill through the forest and reach a first small tarn which is called "Glackerch" by the locals. Further on through the clear forest you soon reach the next small tarn - the "Waldsee" Lake. An idyllic wooden bench invites for a short rest here.
After some minutes walk more you finally reach the Untersee Lake. For the way back take the same way. If you want to take an alternative route for the way back there is a trail that takes you from the lake up to the Reiteralm Alpine Loop. To reach this trail you follow the banks of the lake to the lakes' West end and from there continue uphill until the trail joins the trail n° 66.
Take the bus of Ramsauer Verkehrsbetriebe (Tuesday, Friday and Sunday) from Ramsau and Pichl-Vorberg to the valley terminal of Preunegg-Jet cable-car. From here continue by cable-car to Reiteralm (operating times at www.reiteralm.at).
