Time: 2 Hours
Height difference: 300 m
Start point: bus stop at Hotel Stefaner
End Point: Hirzl path, Rotwand, Masare Peak, Lake Karersee/Carezza.
From Hotel Stefaner, take the bus to the Karer Pass and Frommer pasture. There, you can take the cable-car to the Cologne Hut. Follow path number 549 across the Schuttkar until you come to a fork. Here you need to decide whether you want to take the path to your right and walk along the lower Hirzel path (number 552) and from there to the Paolina hut …or whether you prefer the less used original Hirzl path (number 549). The latter runs along the foot of the Rotwand and the Masarè Peak, across stony, as well as grassy slopes until it runs into the Lower Hirzl path previously described. From there you come to the Ostertag Hut, where you begin your descent. First of all, you follow the high mountain road back until you take a left turn onto path # 548, walking along meadows to Lake Karersee/Carezza. From there, you can take the bus back to your starting point.
