From the Alp Trida saddle mountain station, the road leads toward Alp Trida to point 2423, where it continues straight on, crossing the two chair lifts and the enduro downhill trail for bikers. Shortly afterwards the trail leads past the first small lake, where in calm weather conditions the mountain panorama around Alp Trida is reflected. At point 2439 the trail turns left uphill towards the plateau "Bei den Seen". On the plateau there are several small lakes and numerous large rocks, which invite you to take a break. The hike leads back along the same path.
