From the mountain station of the Kanzelbahn, follow the path (path no. 52) to the upper part of the Waldtratte, where you join the path into the direction of Pöllingersiedlung/Pöllinger Hütte (path no. 176). Follow this road two hairpin bends uphill. Just before the third hairpin bend, turn right again slightly downhill into the direction of Seppl Hütte (path no. 37).

The forest road, which is easy to walk on, narrows before and after crossing the Finsterbach (beware of the risk of slipping when wet!). After crossing the Finsterbach, the narrow path leads back into a wide forest road, which leads slightly downhill to a signposted crossroads. Here you branch off onto the path into the direction of the Schönfeldsiedlung and Seppl Hütte (path no. 7) and, after a few minutes' walk, you reach another crossroads. Turn east and you will reach the Seppl Hütte after a few minutes (path no. 42).

After a well-deserved rest and refreshment, follow the path (path no. 42) back to the crossroads and follow the path to the Schönfeldsiedlung steadily uphill (path no. 7). The path joins the left edge of the ski slope and you follow the lanes in the ski slope further uphill. Shortly below the Schönfeldsiedlung, the path branches off to the left. Below the Schönfeldsiedlung, turn left again in the direction of Pöllinger Hütte (path no. 33).

The further path leads past the source of the Finsterbach and without any significant differences in altitude to a fork in the road. Basically, both ways are possible here. If you are planning a detour to the Pöllinger Hütte, it is better to choose the upper path, which leads to the hut with slight inclines. The way back to the starting point is more direct via the lower path (path no. 33), which leads down to the Pöllingersiedlung and there joins the road (path no. 176).

Follow this track downhill via the well-known section back to Waldtratte and from there back to the starting point of the hike at the Kanzelbahn mountain station.
