The hike begins at the small parking area near the hut, where the canoes are put into the lake loisach. It is located obverse the confluence to Untergrainau, at the "Griesener Straße". From there the way leads upstream along the lake Loisach. Soon a bridge appears, which has to be crossed to get to a place called "Herrgottschrofen". Hiking upwardly please follow the signs to the left in direction of "Stepbergalm" via "Gelbes Gewänd". The path is soon getting smaller and steeper, and after a while the forest is clearing up, before the beautiful nuances of yellow in the "gelben Gewänd"-trail can be seen. From now on it is important to have a good head for heights and to be sure-footed. Some steps and turns are following on the way to the alpine pasture called "Stepbergalm". Now it's either the time to have a meal there, or to go on with the hike to the "Ziegspitze". To continue, turn left and follow the small driveway. At the highest point the way leads left upwards, again. After 200 meters of altitude difference, the ascent is done and the way is getting easier, while the summit cross (1864m) can already be seen. After a last steeply rising path, the highest point is reached.
The descent way is identical to the ascent way.
