The hike from the Völser Weiher Lake to the Schlern requires good physical fitness and surefootedness, but makes up for this with a variety-packed route and exceptional views off into the distance.

From the Völser Weiher Lake, go to the Huber Weiher Lake, where a steep trail forks off towards the Tuff Alm hut. Below the Tuff, follow the signposts to “Schlern, Hoferalpl” (no. 1). A wide walking path leads below the face of the Schlern and over the Völser Bach stream to the freight cable car valley station. Turn left and follow trail 1 up to the entrance of the Schlernschlucht gorge and the “Peter Frag” rest stop. Now take a left onto the Schäufelesteig trail (no. 3), which winds up to the Schlern plateau in a series of steep bends.

From the Refuge Schlernhaus mountain hut, trail no. 1 leads down to the Sesselschwaige mountain hut. Follow the “corduroy” tree-trunk trail, also known as the Prügelweg, into the Schlern gully, down to the Peter Frag roadside cross and back to the Völser Weiher lake along the same route.
