 The Tressenstein 1.201m is a wooded rock in front of the impressive mountain Grimming. The snowshoe tour is relatively safe from avalanches, because there a no big mountainsides. If not exactly a bad weather, every day go some hikers on the Tressenstein. Therefore, the path is very well groomed and you must not hike through deep snow and often you can reach the summit without snowshoes. Nonetheless take for your safety crampons, because the steep areas in the upper part can be icy sometimes.

This tour begins in the very small community Niederstuttern at the road B320 through the valley - Ennstal on 645m above sea level. As many hikers choose Niederstuttern for their starting point, there was built an separate car park for hikers. The first 1.2 km we walk first through the little village and immediately afterwards in the forest on the marked trail in the direction to the hut - Grimminghütte. Before the last 600m to Grimming hut are very flat again we reach a height of 940m. Unfortunately, the Grimming hut is not open in the winter and so and so we must provide ourselves with food. Behind the hut we walk first to the north and then east. The last 500m before the summit are pretty steep. Those who are not too loud during the final meters, has the chance to see some of the not too shy chamois. In any case, you’ll have a very good view to the Grimming, the Tauplitzalm and the Enns Valley. On the descent back to the hut - Grimminghütte there is a second unmarked, but also in winter often frequented trail. The remaining way back to the little village Niederstuttern we go the same route as at the beginning.
