From the Faak Tourist Information Center, the path begins along the lake loop trail (Seerundweg) in the direction of Egg. There is a path across from Anderwald Campground where you take a right into the forest, staying on the path until you reach Hotel Mittagskogel in Ledenitzen. Then there is a trail on the right side of the hotel which leads up the mountain. Take a right at the first fork in the path in order to get to Lake Aichwald. After the lake, you follow the path a few more meters and follow a sharp-left curve further up the mountain. This path leads to Untergreuth, where you take a right towards “Samonighof.” From there you walk downhill to Altfinkensteiner Strasse, which you leave after a short distance in favor of a forest trail that will lead you to the Finkenstein Castle. There is a forest trail north of the castle ruins, on the Alpa-Adria-Trail, which takes you to Pogöriach, and from there back to the starting point.
