Destination point of the tour
The starting point is the car park above the Kompatschhof farm in the hamlet of Flitt near Lüsen. There, hikers follow the forest road no. 2/10 with the sign "Kreuzwiese". The forest road can also be shortened by hiking up a medium-steep slope. Here, too, the trail divides and hikers take trail no. 2 and soon reach the alpine slopes.
Here, hikers follow forest trail no. 2a at another fork in the trail and reach the meadow valley with the Putzerbach stream on a flat path through meadows and forests and then the destination of the hike, the Kreuzwiesenhütte. From there you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Lüsen alpine world and the mighty Peitlerkofel. The way back is either along the same path or very steep via the Gostalm, the Jungfraubrünnl and the hamlet of Rungg.
