The hike starts at the train station in Giessenbach near Scharnitz, or at the hiking parking lot Giessenbach P5/P6 and leads upstream through the picturesque Giessenbach valley. Follow the forest path steeply at the beginning, then a bit more leisurely along the mountain stream. At the fork in the path, keep to the right. The trail goes steeply uphill for a short distance, then continues more flatly through wooded areas and slightly downhill across alpine meadows into a small valley floor. The last stretch to the Eppzirler Alm is slightly uphill.
