Several years ago, this march was run once a year in one day. We recommend combining this tour with a wonderful view with a cabin overnight stay. From the parking lot at the end of Gries follow the road to the hamlet Winnebach to take the trail direction Winnebachseehütte. Soon the trail leads out of the forest past numerous avalanche strokes. The well-laid path winds up steeply at the end up to the Winnebachseehütte which is reached after about 2 hours walking time. After a breather or overnight stay you follow the path behind the hut by the lake through meadows direction Zwieselbachjoch. The ascent to the yoke runs over partly rocky terrain. The descent to Schweinfurterhütte (overnight) leads through the Zwieselbachtal. The way there is well marked - but leads at the beginning over a lot of boulders and boulders. The destination in Niederthai which can be reached on a wide forest path, is now about 2 hours walk away.

If you're lucky you can catch a few groundhogs on the way through the Zwieselbachtal.
