In the village center of Gries you keep to the south, cross the wooden bridge towards the edge of the wall and follow the steeply climbing trail through the forest, which merges into the cart road. A more leisurely but longer ascent to the mountain hut travels along the cart road that forks off to the right at the entrance to Sulztal valley. Hiking past Nisslalm you continue on the rising trail behind the hut, leading uphill towards the tree line for about 30 minutes. You get to grass-covered Alpine meadows. Proceed towards the steeply ascending rock ledges to the eastern ridge at 2600 m above sea level. The last part requires another hour as it travels to lofty heights on a precipitous path.

 

Author’s recommendation

It is possible to go to the Nisslalm by mountain bike. Instead of a long descent, a fast descent awaits you.

Near the car park at the end of Gries (Tiroler Hütte) the ascent begins a steep forest path to the Nisslalm, which crosses the forest path several times. After the pasture, the path leads slightly uphill to lush green meadows. The further increase runs steeply over stone slabs and partly rocky. Difficult passages such as granite slabs and steps are always insured with stepping aids and short wire ropes.
