After a delicious breakfast, the path leads upwards where you pass many pine trees, which are typical for the Ellmautal. Finally you arrive the Filzmoossattel, 2.062 m. Directly at the Filzmoossattel is a particularly beautifully designed gentian, the symbol of the Salzburger Almenweg, which also includes the part from the Filzmoosalm to the Filzmoossattel and further to the Draugsteinalmen.
Here, it is definitely worth to hike to the Filzmooshöhe, 2,103 m (approx. 15 min one way). A different, but beautiful summit cross attracts all hikers.
When you turn around, you will see the Draugstein, 2,359 m, which is majestically towering over the Ellmautal. This mountain is one of three limestone mountains within the valley. The descent is quite comfortable to the Draugsteinalmen, 1,778 m. There are two mountain huts where you will be pampered with local delicacies and where you can spend the night. The left hut is the Schrambachhütte, the right the Steinmannhütte.
After a hearty breakfast, you hike down to the Hallmoosalm (closed). There is a possibility to go down by car or hiking taxi from the Hallmoosalm into the valley. Otherwise, you can still hike into the valley to Karteis.
