You start from Ried with the mountain railroad to Fendels to the Sattelklause. From there, the trail leads past the Fendler Alm, over the Zirmesköpfle to the Anton-Renk-Hütte with a view of the impressive Anton-Renk waterfall. Then the trail leads up to the Great Lake and from there on, to the long-awaited destination, the Zirmesspitze!
The way back is via the same path.
At the Anton Renk hut, you have the option to hike down to the Stalanzer Alm and from there to Ried.
