03 Southern Alpine Trail, E20: Naßfeld -Zollnersee Hütte

We leave the well-known ski resort of Naßfeld via the Madritschen in a westerly direction to the Rudnigsattel in front of the 2280 m high Trogkofel, which would take an additional two hours to climb. Unlike the last few days, we are travelling on alpine terrain throughout. A trench from the First World War accompanies us on the Rattendorfer Schneid and a little caution is required on the steep slopes of the Trogkofel, the Ringmauer and the Findenigkofel. The landscape around the Zollnersee is impressively beautiful!
A detour to the Roßkofel 2240 m is recommended. Allow approx. 2 hours extra walking time.
Sturdy hiking boots, possibly hiking poles

Every rucksack should include: Rain, cold and sun protection, first aid kit, mobile phone (Euro emergency number 112), plenty of fluids, hiking map of the region.

From the A2 Südautobahn motorway exit HERMAGOR onto the Gailtalstraße 111 via Hermagor to Tröpolach.
