After the trail you need to push your bike just to cross one trail and then it goes up the ski slope. After a while you will reach the mountain cottage "Wasserfalleralm". A pathway brings you up to another mountain cottage - the "Kalcheralm". You can return to the hotel on the trail Nr. 13 or on the same path.
