Starting at the market square in front of the municipial building of Treffen am Ossiacher See, you follow the Markstraße slightly uphill (path no. 109) in the direction of the Steinwenderhütte. On the Mühlenweg you cross the small brook "Treffner Bach" and follow the road to the Gerlitzenstraße. Follow this road upwards and before crossing the stream again, branch off onto the forest path, which is quite steep at the beginning.

Then you continue your hike to Pölling via the farms "Baumgartner", "Wieser" and "Steinwender". From the "Steinwender" farmstead, the steepness of the hiking trail decreases a bit. You follow and cross forest roads on pleasant forest paths and after approx. 2 3/4 hours (from Treffen) you reach the Steinwenderhütte.

After a well-deserved and, above all, great culinary break, the tour leads onwards to the Waldtratte (path no. 31) at the mountain station of the Kanzelbahn without any significant differences in altitude. At the mountain station, you can either follow the road or the parallel hiking trail to get in 15 minutes to the car park at the Kanzelhöhe.

Keep to the right here and follow the road in the direction of Kanzel (path no. 176). Before you start the demanding and long descent, on which you can stop off at the Edelweisswirt again. After a few pleasant flat sections on the forest road, the Hüttersteig then branches off at the Julienhöhe at 1,366 meters above sea level, finally turning downhill.

At the former Hütter hunting lodge, follow the forest road to the Annenheim and Treffen junction. Here you stay on the forest road (path no. 3) which leads onto the Gerlitzenstraße. Descending down the valley along the toll road, a few minutes' walk after the bend, you will come to the "Jägersteig - Treffen" junction. Via the Treffner Jägersteig (path no. 3 and 2) it is now the last stretch to Treffen and via the Franz Steiner Weg and the Marktstraße back to the starting point.

After this round, a visit to the Treffner parish church of St. Maximillian is recommended and you can calmly review this hike.
