Description

Lots of beautiful views but also a demanding hike with several places to stop for refreshment.

From the Kreuzjoch mountain station, take a leisurely hike up the ascending panoramic trail in the direction of the Sennjoch and further south past the Kleiner Burgstall to the Burgstallsattel. After the traverse to the Schlicker Schartl, the trail descends briefly to the Stubai High Trail and over scree fields to the tour’s destination, Schlicker See lake. The total walking time to the Schlicker See is about 2.5 hours. The way back is a nice round trip via the Starkenburger Hut. Follow the Stubai High Trail south past the Hoher Burgstall. From the Starkenburger Hut, the path leads back to the Sennjoch and onto the starting point at Kreuzjoch, which you can get to in approx. 4.5 hours on foot. Moderately difficult mountain trail with some slightly exposed sections for experienced hikers.
