Start & End - Ginzling (Gasthaus Altginzling)
Ginzling is served by a regular bus service from Mayrhofen. From the main road, Ginzling Gasthaus Altginzling bus stop, walk down and cross the bridge over the Zemmbach River. Turn left on the other side and walk past the church with its immaculate cemetery. Just past the church turn right past the modern building housing the tourist information centre. Walk up this lane as far as the small chapel. Take the footpath to the left by the side of the chapel.
The path climbs across a meadow before entering woodland. The path climbs in zig-zags and is well signed. During the ascent you cross two wide tracks serving houses before reaching a tarmac road. Turn right on this and continue round the bend to reach the Gasthaus Innerböden.
To return to Ginzling it is easier to use the road for part of the descent. Leave the Gasthaus and descend on the road. Reaching a T-junction, go right and continue downhill. Then take the first major track on the left. This leads to a house. The signed footpath descends to the right soon reaching the meadow crossed during the first part of the walk.
