The 5 km long Hirzelweg can be reached in several ways. The trail number 549, which starts at the Frommer Alm and leads to the Kölner Hütte and the Hirzelweg, is more leisurely. Active sports enthusiasts who prefer something a bit more challenging are best advised to take via ferrata no. 552/551 up to the Vajolon Pass at 2,560 m – right into the rocky realm. The descent is via the Rotwand Hütte and the Hirzelweg back to the starting point.
The Hirzelweg is suitable for all ages and skill levels. The ascent over the Vajolon Pass is moderately difficult, but should only be attempted by experienced hikers.
