From Pettneu you will first hike through the Malfontal (valley). A hiking path leads uphill through many switchbacks. Here you will get a great view on the glacier Pettneuer Ferner and its spectacular waterfall. After appr. 1550 m (1695 yards) the hiking tour will reach the old path again, where you will turn right. After half an hour the ascending path will have taken you to the beginning of the Malfonalm.
On the cycling path, you'll continue further into the valley until you reach the valley station of the goods cable lift. Just before the station you turn left onto the steep path, which will moderately ascend through the Jakobstal (valley). At some point the path will branch off in two directions, both of which you can choose to hike on. Straight forward, along a stream, you will get to the Edmund-Graf-Hütte. Towards the left, the main route will lead to the hut slightly steeper across a rocky meadow slope. The refuge is located just underneath the Hoher Riffler (3168 m – 3464 yards) and offers a magnificent view. The descent will be hiked on the same path back. At the beginning of the Malfonalm, it is recommended to use the new driveway to hike downhill to Pettneu again.
