Turn-by-turn directions

We left St. Sigmund in a southerly direction in the Gleirschtal . The route follows the Gleirschbach upstream . Over the Gleirschalm and the front Gleirschalm we go almost up to the origin of the Gleirschbachs . Just before the trail branches off to the left however and leads the Pforzheim hut a little later to our destination .
