At the foot of the Kampermauer at the Puglalm, the path leads through pastures, which give way to a section of forest. After crossing the Hengstpaßstraße, the Laussabauernalm is already within sight. From here, the path leads along the Rotkreuz stream to Rotkreuz chapel, where you can learn about the healing effects of the Rotkreuz spring. A short climb to the Hengstpaßstraße and you will have already completed the trail.
Time-on-trail is 2 hrs. at a leisurely pace, trail length ca. 4 km

Observation tips
Learn interesting information about life on the hill farm past and present.

Please do not forget to save the tour "offline" (top right), because the mobile phone reception in the forest wilderness of the national park is not always available.
