Pirklrundweg is a very easy loop trail suitable even for families with kids or elderly people. It is a good way to get to know the destination if you just arrived at Pruggern. At the top of the cabin village you can find a huge sign with all the hiking trails around the village. Follow the dirt road along track number 100 until you reach a sign "Pirklrundweg" pointing to the north. Follow the sign across beautiful pasture land and through the forest until you reach the base station of the mountain railways.
