In the footsteps of a legend...
Whether clockwise or anticlockwise, the aim is to circumnavigate the peaks of the Western Zillertal Valley Alps. Possible start points include Ginzling in the Zillertal Valley, St. Jodok with Schmirn (Toldern and Kasern) or Vals in the Wipptal Valley. Alternatively it is also possible to join the trail from the Brenner, Pfitsch Valley, Schlegeis reservoir or Hintertux - as described in this version.
All valley locations can be reached by public transport (train or bus).
The trail covers a total distance of 56 km including 4,990 m ascent and 4,980 m descent with stops at 6 mountain huts in the midst of beautiful alpine countryside.
