Trail head directly across from the children's ski area: This trail takes you across meadows next to the Steirersiedlung section of town and crosses the road next to the Schaupphof. There you have the option to switch to the trail leading to the Riesneralm valley station, or to continue skiing out towards the valley head.
Trail head at Hotel Stegerhof: Following the banks of the Donnersbach, you will ski through forest and meadows, crossing the main road as you make your way up to the Fössnerlehen. After an easy climb, the trail takes you to the meadows behind "Hoanz" Farm, a small farming community as well as "Gasthof zur Gams". A loop will now bring you back to the Roanerstrasse and finally the Stegerhof.
Tip: An XC trail map with detailed descriptions is available at the Stegerhof or from Donnersbachwald Tourist Office.
