From the starting point at the Weinebene you'll be hiking on an ascending path passing the Weinofen. Follow the forest path for about 45 minutes until you get to the Grillitschhütte (hiking path no. 05). From here the way will lead steeply uphill towards the Hühnerstütze and then to the highest point of the tour, the Großer Speikkogel. On the way, you'll be passing the Seespitz. The following part will lead you further downhill, passing the Krakaberg until you reach the Wallfahrer Kreuz (engl. pilgrims' cross) at the Jauksattel. The final part of this leg (hiking path no. 594) encompasses roughly 4 km (2.5 miles), passing Kleinalpl on the way to the Kärntner Brandl.
