Ascherhütte via Spinnscharte

Starting point: Schönjochbahn top station
Character: Very beautiful high alpine hike from the Fisser Joch on the Spinnseensteig path through the deepest Urgtal valley to the Oberen Spinnsee lake and via Spinnscharte into the Paznauntal valley to the Ascherhütte, 2,256 m. The scenery is certainly the most beautiful ascent to the Ascherhütte. The Alpine Club hut is open and offers the possibility to stay overnight.
Walking time: ½ hours (ascent only)

Description: You reach the Oberen Spinnsee lake as descripted on trail no. 16. From the lake, go left up over the Steinkare to Spinnscharte 2,681 m (F106a) 2,681 m. Behind that, descending slightly over a broad backed ridge and over this, down more steeply to the hut at the valley. Return via Glockscharte (S269) and Glockhäuser (S263/261) or via Medrigjoch and Furglerjoch (S212) to the Komperdell (S103). Walking time, 3 - 4 hrs. However, the descent to See in the Paznauntal valley (cablecar) is shorter. Walking time: 1 hour to the cablecar, 2 1/2 hours down to the valley. For hut tours of several days, the traverse on trail no. 713 over Masnerjoch 2,685 m (S239) to the Hexenseehütte (S233) is recommended.
