Follow the signposts to "Ötztaler Fun Park" in Huben and walk past the water park. Here you take the cart trail up to Polltalalm and Breitlehnalm. A switch-backing route winds its way up to the forest on 13 kilometers. At about 2/3 of the hike the path forks-off and you leave the route to Polltalalm and Breitlehnalm, heading southwards across wonderful Alpine rose and heather meadows, blueberry and bilberry fields to lofty Hahlkogelhaus hut. A level path travels southwards to a wide open right-hand turn, merging into a steep green slope. You reach the peak after conquering a couple of rocky and fairly precipitous sections.


Author’s recommendation

The ascent to the summit can be shortened by using the hut taxi, which in summer goes up to the Polltalalm. Reservation required at Ötztal Tourismus.
