Brixen High level path

From the top station of the gondola lift Plose to the Ochsenalm
Brixen High Level Path  is also called Zirm high level path and is a beautiful panorama path with a fantastic view of the whole town. From the top station of the cable car the path takes you to the Ochsenalm, crossing the west hillside of the mountain. The well-maintained and comfortable walk is particularly suitable as an alpine family hike.
Height difference in ascent and descent 100 m, distance one way 6 km, Route Nr. 30
Course: From the cable there is a well-marked path, at first rising, which takes you northwards, on the border of the forest. After a small hut on the west hillside of the Schönjöchl you will cross the Trametsch ditch. Continuing on the same path you will cross other ditches and rocks until you reach the Ochsenalm. The steep hillsides are filled with Alpine roses (they flower end of June until mid July). The view is fantastic! On a good weather day the sight reaches Sarntal’ s mountains, the Stubeier and Pfunderer mountains, and even Zillertaler’ s Alps.
Restaurants on the way: Right next to the top station of the top station of the gondola lift, there is the Restaurant La Finestra. At the end of the Brixen High Level Path you get to the Ochsenalm, a traditional mountain inn that offers simple dishes, based on regional recipes.

From the top station of the gondola lift Plose to the Plose Hut and Mount Telegraph with Panoramic Table
The hike to the top of the Plose is worth all the way for it‘s simply fantastic panorama. Once you have reached the Plosehuette, Mt. Telegraph with the panoramic table is very close. From here you have a marvellous view of the surrounding mountains, including the Dolomites and other famous peaks.

Path No. 3 (steep!) takes you on top of the Schönjöchl, where you have really great views of the surrounding landscape. Both paths join again at the  saddle below the Schönjöchl from where they take you to the Plose hut (2445 m). Just a few hundred meters away there is the Mt. Telegraph, 2486 m high.
