Taking you from Hochfügen to Rastkogel Hut, this wonderful loop tour across the Tux Alps provides you with a very good workout. But the payoff for that work includes glorious views of rocky summits and glaciers and access to lush Alpine pastures brimming with wildflowers and sparkling lakes and tiny tarns. You'll need excellent endurance and a good cardiovascular system to complete this difficult 24.7-kilometer long trek in eight hours.
- Trail No. 24 provides access to pristine places and traverses varied terrain on its way atop Rastkogel Peak. The mighty glaciers of the Zillertal Alps and the striking rock promontory of Ahornspitze Peak dominate the horizon.
- Pyramid-shaped Rastkogel Peak is a superb viewpoint with peaks in every direction: Catch your breath not from climbing (although it's tough), but from watching a continuous reel of premiere showings starring the glistening white glaciers of the Tux Main Ridge, the Stubai Alps, and the mighty Karwendel Range.
- The stunning location of Rastkogel Hut, which is embedded in a mosaic of brilliant wildflowers, will most certainly captivate you. The inviting outdoor terrace provides a perfect rest stop for weary hikers. Gather new strength over hearty, local delicacies.
