From Brixen i.Th. the winding, steadily ascending asphalt road leads past the Nieding mountain inn up the Brixner Sonnberg and changes to a gravel road shortly before the Hochbrixen mountain station. From the Hochbrixen mountain station at 1,300 m above sea level, the trail becomes flatter and leads directly past the Filzalmsee lake. Via the Silleralm you reach the Hexenwasser Hochsöll on an easy gravel path. The route can also be followed in the opposite direction.
