Continue on route no. 6 to the small mountain lake Wuhnleger. After impressive views of the Rosengarten and its reflection in the water, you continue to Völsegg (path no. 4) alternating wood paths and single trails.

Relatively flat, we continue passing by the Hagner Alm and the Schillerhof, to the Wolfsgrubenjoch.

On the forest trail no. 13 you go uphill, cross beautiful alpine pastures and enjoy a great view of the Rosengarten. After approximately 2.5 km on this forest road there is a branch; it is recommended to go up here to the right, because you return on the other way on the way back and this is much more challenging. There is a sweeping forest road up to an altitude of 1700m. Here we continue downhill, across the Tschamin brook, to the so-called Rechter Leger. You stand now directly on the mountain walls and enjoy a breathtaking view. Now, there is a spectacular descent along route no. 13 back to the aforementioned branch-point. Continue the same way as before until path no. 12 branches off to the right. Follow this road along the Traunwiesen to the Tschaminschwaige.
