HINTERE FUNDUSALM -> Frischmannhut -> Köfler waal path -> Köfler Scharte -> HINTERE FUNDUSALM
The hut-taxi takes you from Umhausen to the Hintere Fundusalm. The loneliness and the beauty of nature can be wonderfully enjoyed here. Green meadows and the crystal-clear Fundussee invite you to linger on a hot summer's day. There begins the trail to the Frischmannhut. Then the circular trail leads in the direction of Schwarze Wand and over the Köfler waal path, which is probably unique because of its exposed position above the tree line and the terrain (more than 50% consists of primary rocks) up to the Köfler Scharte at 2,084 m above sea level. From the saddle, a short path leads down to the Hintere Fundusalm, where you can again take the return trip to Umhausen by taxi. If you are still fit and you want to, you can walk down the wide forest path to Umhausen - walking time about two hours.
Köfler Jochwaal - This irrigation system was built in the middle of the 15th century to make better use of the fields and meadows.
