Starting in Mandarfen, cross the bridge to the mountain rescue building and then turn right and follow the signposts to “Hirschtal / Rifflsee Lake”. The steep path leads through the Hirschtal valley up to Rifflsee Lake. The path continues just below the mountain restaurant Sunna Alm / top station Rifflsee gondola to the lake. Continue to run along the lakeshore to the Wurmtal valley and follow the signposts to Plodersee Lake. Past rushing mountain brooks and waterfalls follow the path until you reach the fork and then turn left to Plodersee Lake. Once there, do not descend via the steep ski slope but continue to run straight ahead following the markings, then follow the path down into the valley. Take care along a steep path (slip hazard) downhill and cross the Grubenkopf chairlift (only operational in winter) until you reach a fork, then follow signposts to the catered mountain hut Taschachalm down into the valley. Once there, it is an easy road back down to your starting point in Mandarfen.
