This is the final day of a three day route through changing mountain scenery from the Brenner pass area into the Stubai alps. It is a variant on the Jubilaumssteig.
From the Tribulaun the route takes you easily up good zig-zags to Pfferscher Scharte (Sandesjochl) (2599m, 231m ascent, 0.6km) from where there are incredible views.
You now rejoin the Jubilaums steig. This is well-marked throughout but seemingly little walked. There are lots of up and down here with the ground often difficult where long grass covered holes. The descent into the Simmingbach cirque is steep but well-protected by wires and a ladder. Where the path crosses the Simmingbach river there is no bridge. If the river is high a leap from a high rock is the best way to cross.
Continue to the foot of Mitteregg (c2100m, 200m ascent, 5km). From here follow path 102 to the Bremerhütte (2411m, 311m ascent, 1km).
From here we followed the Hochstubaiweg to the west. Alternatively you can follow the Jubilaums steig to the east.
Note - altitude, ascent and distance (where appropriate) are given for each section of the route.
