From the Stupfer parking lot in Gaistal, the trail first climbs steeply for about 400 m to trail no. 9, which you now follow to the Waldsteig junction. Here you can decide whether to continue on trail no. 9 or take the steeper trail to the Wettersteinhütte or to the Wangalm. On the way, the forest repeatedly opens up panoramic passages with views of the surrounding mountain peaks and the Hohe Munde.
