Directly on top of the mountain Hochwurzenhütte chalet invites for drinks and a snack to eat. From the summit you enjoy a great view into the Schladminger Tauern mountains, over the Ennstal valley, the plateau of Ramsau and the impressive Dachstein massif. From the summit you have the choice to take the cable-car for the way down or one of three hiking trails (n° 60, n° 61 or the 4-seasons trail).
