From the Pumphaus car park (parking free of charge) follow the signs for „Alter Steig“ and the waymarks uphill through the woods direction Jocheralm. After approx. 40 min. one reaches the forest track and 3 min. later the Jocheralm. Follow the trail direction Kienberg. The path to the Kienberg peak is easy and the peak is reached within approx. 50 min. The views from the bench towards the Rofan Range and Karwendel mountains, Guffert, Kitzbühel and Ziller Valley Alps are most rewarding. Take the same path for the hike back up to the first junction below the peak. Turn left walking along the "Grat" path direction Plessenberg (little elevation difference). Once again the peak offers an ideal vantage point to enjoy views over the Inn Valley, the Kitzbühel and Ziller Valley Alps and the Hohe Tauern with Großglockener and Großvenediger. Walk back the way you came, at the saddle bear left along a short uphill (surefootedness required) towards Heuberg. Continue straight along the ridge downhill towards the Jocheralm. At the Jocheralm either walk back the way you came or follow the forest track to the starting point.

Please note; the path leading to Heuberg demands surefootedness and a head for heights! 

The Heuberg can be easily bypassed by staying on the path up to the Kienberg  cross section. Instead of walking through the meadow turn left and walk along the ridge to the Jocheralm.  

Sturdy shoes and surefootedness required.
