Directions

Follow the western path no. 36 from the valley road in San Martino/Val Casies Valley all the way up to the Karbacher Hof (1440m, refreshment stop). Car park "Am Kofel" along the road below the Karbacherhof. On the agricultural road, follow the markings no. 42 into the upper Karbach Valley all the way to the Ochsenfeldalm (2014m). From there, continue on trail no. 42 in a north-westward direction, traversing the alpine slopes upwards to the “Grübelscharte” (2394m); once there, take a sharp right and partly evenly, partly ascending cross the extensive alpine pastures, following the markings no. 9 and the tracks in an east-northward direction to the lakes “Ochsenfelder Seen” (2555m). Return: Either use the ascent route to return again, or, to shortcut the upper part of the hike for at least half an hour, do not return from the lakes to the Grüblscharte (notch), instead, walk straight down the grassy slopes, partly on herd tracks, to the Ochsenfeldalm. From there, take path no. 42, passing the hut Schäfer Alm (1616m), to reach the starting point.
