In Huben, a hamlet of Längenfeld the hike begins in Mühle. At the beginning you follow the road to the Polltal and Breitlehnalm. Hikers can soon switch to the Ötztal Hochalmen hiking trail. Striking is the fern-rich larch - pine forest. After 2/3 of the way, the path branches off towards Hahlkogelhaus. Ignore this signpost and continue straight to the Polltalalm. After a short rest and refreshment, it goes behind the hut over Almrosenböden, Heidel- and Preiselbeerheiden on to the Breitlehnalm. The path between the two huts is perfect for taking a break, enjoying nature and the magnificent view. Arriving at the Breitlehnalm, a hiking trail leads back to Huben.

Author’s recommendation

It is recommended to go the round in the opposite direction, as the descent on the trail is rather steep.
