The Staufenspitze is located to the north of the Schuttannen parking lot (Location 38.26). A freight trail heads across an alpine area, the so-called ‘Gerstenböden’, towards Staufen. The trail forks in two directions near Emne (Location 38.25). That’s where the round hike across the Staufenspitze, which leads almost exclusively through wooded areas, starts. A mountain trail takes a north-westerly direction towards the Staufenspitze (Location 20.215) – sure-footedness is required here.Towards the east, the route switches from a forest path to a steep alpine trail to reach the Staufenspitze. This hike requires sure-footedness and a head for heights. A round hike in both directions is possible for the experienced. Less experienced hikers should choose the north-west route to ascend and descend the Staufen. The Staufenspitze presents magnificent views in all directions.
