The tour
This hike leads in just under an hour through a bright but notably damp forest, to a cirque and the small Kothüttensee tarn, then becoming somewhat steeper through a grassy fields of rocks up to the ridge near the Goldbachscharte.  On the ridge we follow markings for trail No. 902 to the W, enjoying an easy hike to a striking rock formation (the Hunnengrab), continuing on our leisurely hike across a grassy hillside to the trail crossing on the Karlspitze.

The trail to Schoberspitze now leads gently downhill to the Karscharte, from where a short-but-steep hike (No. 925) along the wide southern ridge of the Schoberspitz leads to the summit.  The view is something to rave about: the massive rock figure of the Grimming naturally attracts all the attention at first.  But then we have time to observe the other surrounding peaks, the small tarns and green cirques. It is a place to enjoy! We will take the same route back.
Turn-by-turn directions
Von der Planneralm beim Parkplatz Wegkreuz und der Lift Talstation starten wir unsere Wanderung. Entlang des Weges mit der Nr. 5 marschieren wir in das Kar mit dem Kothüttensee. Durch eine grüne Blockhalde geht es für uns etwas steiler auf den Grat in der Nähe der Goldbachscharte. Dort folgen wir der Markierung 902 nach Westen und steigen zu einem markanten Felsgebilde (Hunnengrab). Von dort wandern wir gemächlich über einen Grashang zum Wegkreuz auf der Karlscharte, wo uns der kurze, aber steile Anstieg (Nr. 925) am breiten Südgrat des Schoberspitz zum Gipfel führt. Zurück nehmen wir denselben Weg.
