From the parking lot at the end of Gries you follow the road to Winnebach to take the trail towards Winnebachseehütte. Soon the steep track leads out of the forest past numerous avalanche points. The well-laid trail winds up steeply at the end, to the right you can watch the wild Winnebach-river. Arrived at the hut you have the possibillity to linger on the lake, which is located directly behind the hut.
