This hiking tour starts at the end of the Ellmautal, which is the largest side valley of Grossarltal. Starting point is the car parking Grund. You reach the Filzmoosalm on a beautiful hiking path (or alternatively via the forestry road). This mountain hut is situated in an untouched natural landscape.

After a little refreshment with homemade delicacies you hike upwards, where you pass lots of Swiss stone pine trees. Finally you reach the Filzmoossattel. Directly at the Filzmoossattel, there is a beautifully designed gentian, the symbol of the Salzburger Almenweg, which also includes the part from the Filzmoosalm to the Tappenkarsee.
You continue to the Draugsteintörl. From here you have already a beautiful view of the Lake Tappenkar, the largest mountain lake in the Eastern Alps. You descend to the Tappenkarseehütte. Here you can also enjoy warm delicacies such as Kaiserschmarrn.
You continue along the Lake Tappenkar to the Tappenkarseealm. In several serpentines the path leads down to the Schwabalm, from here it is possible to take the hiking taxi back to Grossarltal.
