The second stage of the Pitztaler Almenweg starts in St Leonhard in the district of Scheibe at 1,390 m. Follow a forest path for a short while, then a steep forest track for approx. 1.5 hrs until you reach the Arzler Alm at 1,875 m. This is the first and only catered mountain hut on this hike. After the Arzler Alm follow a wide forest road for approx. 1 km, then turn off south just below the Rappenkopf. This steep path climbs up gradually. After about 500 m there is another turn-off (this part is hard/black), where you should bear off again in a southerly direction. From here, the high-level trail starts and continues on almost the same altitude level (between 2,000 m and 2,400 m) below the Seirlöcherkogel summit in the direction of the Neururer Berg. Along this route, enjoy several fantastic vistas of Mandarfen, the Mittagsk ogel mountain and the Pitztal Glacier. Once you reach the Neururer Berg after a hik e of about 4 hours, cross a wooden bridge over the Seebach brook and continue to follow the track southwards until you reach a lake (Mittelberglesee at 2,446 m). From there the track climbs to 2,783 m. Follow the path in the direction of the catered mountain hut Kaunergrathütte at 2,817 m (trail number 927) for approx. 3.5 hrs. This is where you will stay overnight. Please note that you must allow between 9 and 9.5 hrs walking time for this Alpine trek. On the following morning, leave the Kaunergrathütte, at the foot of the mighty Watzenspitze (3,532m) and follow trail number 926 to return to Pitztal/ Plangeroß, which will take about 3 hrs.
