Passeier High Mountain Trail (Passeirer Höhenweg)

The starting point for this hike is the bus stop at Römerkehre (last bend before the Jaufen Pass, 1,900 m). The trail (no. 12A) ascends gently to the Flecknerhütte mountain hut (2,100 m) and then there is a nice footpath below the ridgeback to the Glaitner Joch ridge (2,249 m) continuing up towards the Glaitner Hochjoch ridge (2,390 m), the highest point of the hike. The hike directly along the ridge to the Schloter Joch ridge (2,264 m) provides a magnificent view. From the Schloter Joch (also called Schlattacher Joch), a quick diversion to the idyllically situated Übelsee lake is worthwhile. You then continue along trail no. 15 to the high-Alpine pasture, across mountain meadows to the mountain hut Egger-Grub-Alm below and then further downhill, partially on a road, partially on a footpath through forest and across meadows to Stulles/Stuls. Hikers who are pressed for time can descend before the high-Alpine pasture via trail no. 15A to Stulles.
