Trail description

From the Schranzenberg car park near Navis there is a wide path heading up towards the Naviser Hütte (1,785 metres) but hikers can instead take the narrower trail which is shorter and steeper. Eventually you will reach the Naviser Hütte, the first of several huts en route serving food and drink. From there it is another 20 minutes or so to the Stöcklalm at (1,882 metres) where hearty Tirolean food is also available. From this second hut, the trail winds its way up to a grassy ridge and then on to the top of the Naviser Kreuzjöchl (2,536 metres) marked by a mighty crucifix. This mountain is a popular destination in both summer (hiking) and winter (ski touring), not least thanks to its fine views of the surrounding peaks including the Mieslkopf, Pfoner Kreuzjöchl, Grünberger and Sonnenspitze.

The descent can be completed along the same route as the ascent. Alternatively, if you wish to turn this into a circular hike then you can walk back for a bit along the way you came, then turn off right and hike across the nothern flank of the Kreuzjöchls until you meet the trail towards the Polten Alm (1,880 metres), another good place to stop for a meal. From there it is simply a case of heading back to the Naviser Hütte and then down to the car park.
