Blasenka, 2.004m & Hochlicht, 2.109m | Fontanella

The hike starts at the parking lot at the "Säge" in Fontanella. From here a very short stretch along the road in the direction of Seewaldsee before the hike branches off to the left. A rather steep path leads up through the forest in the direction of Brüche. Here you come out above the tree line and the small plateau with the Zafernmaisäß opens up. A little below the upper Maisäß huts, the path branches off in the direction of the Bärenalpe. Past the Bärenalpe for the hiking trail over two smaller ravines (short rope safety) always slightly ascending. Then the trail leads through a rather steep grassy slope up to a small yoke. At the Joch, the trail branches off to the right in the direction of Hochlicht and Blasenka. At both summits you can enjoy a fabulous panoramic view. The first part of the way back to the Bärenalpe is on the same path. At the Bärenalpe the path branches off to the left. Through the forest it goes over a quite steep path along the Seewaldtobel down towards the Seewaldsee. At the Seewaldsee you can stop for a break and walk around this little natural jewel before returning the last few meters along the road to the starting point.

Author's recommendation

A side trip to the Seewaldsee is worthwhile!
