Starting from the parking place, follow the macadam road for a few meters, pass the information tables and cross the small bridge. Immediately after the bridge, head left to the steep trail passing the signposts. After a few minutes, our trail joins the road where signposts direct us to the right. Shortly after the left road turn, signposts direct us right to the trail in direction Scharnik. The larch forest is slowly disappearing until the trail connects again with the road, which must be followed for a short section, when again well-marked signposts direct us right to the trail. The trail leads to Ochsnerhütte at 1810 m.
The signs behind the Ochsnerhütte show the way to Scharnik, i.e. Path 315. Firstly, you will pass a cross and not so far after a lake (look behind you, as you might miss it). The trail on grassy terrain gets a bit steeper and it soon brings you to the ridge. Be on the lookout for signs, since the way branches off to the left in direction Lamnitzsee. The trail brings you to the other side of the ridge and it slowly descends most of the time until it reaches a trail from Unteralmhütte.
Continue left and after 30 minutes of a slightly steeper trail turn left (right is Scharnik).
After 10 minutes of walk you will reach the lake.
