Walk from Obergurgl across Achbrücke bridge and along the steep trail leading up to "Beil" area. Continue hiking past lush meadows and flowers in full bloom, overlooking the picture-book Alpine valleys. The high elevation trail takes you to Gurgl's pasturelands and Küppele Schäferhütte. Here you continue on the steeply climbing path until you reach the two "Herrenbäche" mountain brooks. Keep to the right at the height of the former goods lift, following the switch-backing route up to "Köpfele" peak where you find the serviced Ramolhaus.
