In the center of Längenfeld an der Fischbachbrücke the hike begins on the right bank of the Fischbach. You follow the road for a few meters and then decide on the forest path or the Felsensteig (about 250 steps) for the ascent to Gries / Brandalm. After a few bends signposts point to the turnoff towards Gries. We stay on the forest road towards fire and soon reach the snack station on a meadow-covered high plateau. From here you have a magnificent view of the valley basin of Längenfeld and the surrounding mountains of the Ötztal.
