On the first day you start at the Hallmoosalm (car park) in Hüttschlag. From here you start your hike trough the forest and pass the Karteisalm (not opened). Aferwards the trail continues over alpine meadows (especially beautiful in early summer whet the "Almrosen" are in bloom) to the Kreuzeck. From here you have a fantstic view of the Tappenkarsee, the largest mountain lake in the Alps.
Afterwards, you descend via the Karteistörl to the Tappenkarsee. Directly next to the lake there is the Tappenkarseehütte and the Tappenakrseealm. Then you hike uphill again to the Draugsteintörl and downhill to the Draugsteinalmen. Arerived here, you can chosse one of the two huts (either the Steinmannhütte or the Schrambachhütte). Both offer delicacies from their own production and overnight stays.
