Below the parking we cross a small river and walk at the south borders of the area of the Blaa Alm until the path leads upwards into a forest and further to the mountain pasture called "Fludergrabenalm". At the big crossing there we head to the left and follow the marked route of the so-called "Via Alpina" up to another moutain pasture, the Sandlingalm, which we reach in one hour. At the end of this mountain pasture we meet a forest road coming from Upper Austria. This needs to be continued about 200 meters until we take the turn, path number 251, to the Sandling. After a steep way up we reach the first peak. Take care especially when its wet and slippery, like in autumn. Then via rocks you will reach the actual steep track to wards the peak. At the crossing with the path number 250 you must turn to the left steep upwards to the peak, which finally we will reach after 3,5 hours. For the way back we choose the path number 250 steep, but save downwards to the mountain pasture "Vordere Sandlingalm". From this point we turn to the right and walk back in a leisurely pace to the the mountain pasture "Ausseer Sandlingalm" and take the path back the Fludergrabenalm to reach finally our starting point at the Blaa Alm.
