Catch a bus from Tirol’s capital Innsbruck and ride to Grinzens (to “Wendeplatz” bus stop). Opposite to the bus stop, follow the trail to “Kemater Alm” and “Adolf-Pichler-Hütte” and walk a few meters on the paved village road. Soon, the road turns onto a forest road (toll road) that runs into Senderstal Valley, straight as an arrow, through groves and alpine pastures here and there. Moreover, the road parallels Sendersbach Brook on its left hand side first, later the trail follows the right bank of the brook. The toll road ends at Kemater Alm Alpine Pasture Hut. Leave Senderstal Valley on the dirt road that runs above the alpine pasture hut and follow the sign saying “Adolf-Pichler-Hütte”. Follow this road, which parallels Griesbach Brook and gradually climbs wide open pastures up to Adolf-Pichler-Hut (the last section in switchbacks). The hut is located opposite to lofty Kalkkögel Peaks.
