From the Nature Park Info Center Scharnitz, follow the Hinterautal road about 2 km into the valley, then take a turn to the left and hike in a few serpentines to the so-called Lablehner (open meadow, with a beautiful view of the Brunnstein and into the Karwendel valley). The path becomes flatter for a short distance (always keep to the right) and then continues in numerous serpentines, steadily uphill to the Pleisenhütte, which invites you to take a break with its wonderful south-facing sun terrace. Hikers in good shape continue the ascent to the Pleisenspitze. Directly behind the hut, a narrow, partly steep trail leads first through mountain pines and later across mountain meadows to the Pleisenspitze, which awaits the hiker with a magnificent view. The descent follows the ascent route. Surefootedness required!
