Walk on the slightly ascending trail from Obergurgl, behind the tennis court in the foothills of the Ferwallhang slope, in northern direction to Ferwallbach bridge - or from the car park of Festkogl mountain gondola uphill towards the fork-off into the high altitude trail. Scenic Alpine rose meadows accompany you on a permanently rising trail into Königstal valley. At halfway you can also descend to the hamlet of Königsrain. In Königstal you cross the Königsbachklamm ravine on a small bridge, where a southern slope travels to the high Alpine plateau of Angerer Alm and the hotel resort of Hochgurgl. Continue on the Timmelsjoch road for a while until you reach the broadcasting tower: just opposite you take the descending route across marvelous Alpine rose meadows and stone pine areas to Weißenbachgraben gorge and the grass-covered ski run to Pillerseeweg trail or you return to Obergurgl.
