Steinegg – Fisser Joch via Karpensteinsteig pathLevel of difficulty: medium / walking time: 1 1/2 hours from Steinegg
Starting point: Steinegg - Schönjochbahn midway station
Character: A seldom taken route, an alternative to the vehicle track. It is a little grown over, but very quiet and full of fine views.
Description: From the Steinegg (F061) take the vehicle track no. 9 to the second serpentine (F062). Then turn right onto the Fisser Höhenweg trail and the Karpensteinsteig path (F063). Just after a few meters, turn left moderately steep over high alpine pastures to a room-sized boulder (F094, Karpenstein). Now cross the vehicle track, up a bit more steeply, between the avalanche galleries onto a wide backed ridge (F084). The trail leads you left after a few
minutes to the Fisser Joch (F087) with its cablecar and restaurant. To the right, you go over the gentle wide ridge to the Schönjöchl summit cross (F079).
