Route description

From Thurnerwirtshaus Past the Ski Lift

You start your hike at the signpost 'Thurner' near the bus station at the pub Thurnerwirtshaus. Start following the yellow rhombus signs.

Enter the forest to the right, pass the ski lift, and you will get to the signpost 'Doldenbühl-Schanze'.
