The hiking tour starts in Ellmautal at Grund. Along a hiking path you come to the Filzmoosalm. This hut is situated in the intact nature. Between some cliffy mountains there are lots of alpine meadows. You can get self-made delicacies like bread, butter, cheese or bacon on the Filzmoosalm. Along the hiking path after the Filzmoosalm you see a lot of Swiss stone pines, which are typically for the Ellmautal.

The hiking path takes you to the Filzmoossattel. Here you find a big gentian, which is the symbol of the Salzburger Almenweg. The way from the Filzmoossattel to the Filzmoosalm is one part of the Salzburger Almenweg.

You hike along the ridge in serveral serpentines to the top of the Draugstein. ATTENTION: Surefootedness is required and you have to be free of dizziness.

At the top of the summit, you can enjoy the wonderful view to the surrounding mountains.

Either you descend again on the same path to the Filzmoosalm or you decide for another mountain hut in the Ellmautal (Loosbühelalm, Weissalm or Ellmaualm) or you hike the Draugsteinalmen in Hüttschlag.
