Starting point is the parking lot at the outskirts of Gries. From here you follow a slightly ascending forest road in the direction of Sulztalalm. Past the Vögelasbrücke you soon reach the junction where you follow the forest trail to Sulztalalm. Once there, the route continues in the direction of Amberger Hütte. The last 20 minutes of the trail show a steep incline, but immediately afterwards you reach the Amberger Hütte. Just below the hut is a small lake with sulfur spring.

Author’s recommendation

Bronze relief section of the Ötztal Nature Park at the start of the trail: Here you can learn about the habitat "Wild Water" or the history of Gries.
