Directions
From the head of the valley in St. Magdalena in the Gsieser Valley, follow the signpost number 49 into the valley past the cross-country trail and the wood turner workshop; then hike straight across the dark spruce forest. Now partly continue along the path and partly across crunchy snow-covered alpine meadows all the way to the Pidigalm at 1674 m. Once there, continue straight past various hay barns, (partly with avalanche protection) always on the orographic right side of the valley and parallel to the stream, all the way up to the Oberberg Alm and enjoy the last steep climb to the Gsieser Törl (2205 m).
