From the Bierbaumer Inn we follow a road for about 1.5 km in the direction of Pustriz. Following the path ÖAV No. 338, we turn right into a hollow way before the village center. We soon reach a small settlement along a narrow path and steep tracks. After a short stretch on a road, the path leads us through a forest and past two farmsteads to the Tormannkogel. Now we follow the hiking trail ÖAV No. 338 in gentle curves up the road towards the romantic scattered settlement of Tschrietes. From the height of the turnoff to the scattered settlement of Tschrietes we have a magnificent view of the Karawanken. We continue on trail no. 338 to the Petutschnig inn, one of the oldest inns in Carinthia. Afterwards we go uphill on a field path across a steep meadow. The hike continues over the Kostmannkogel and the Hochöfen to the forest border. Here we leave the ridge and cross below the Speikkogel towards the Wolfsberger Hütte. Afterwards, however, we turn right down at a crossroads and shortly reach the Pöllinger Hütte.
