The starting point of the hike is at the summit of the Kombibahn Penken (2000m).  Turn left and go in the direction of Penken/Penkenjoch. Please notice on the left side the signs Rastkogel 4 hours.  After 30minutes it goes up in the direction of the Penkenjoch (2095m).  On the right side the path goes upwards on a graveled road. At the next signs go straight ahead. On the left side you would go to the direction Vorderlanersbach or to the middle station of the Finkenberger Almbahnen. On the end of the graveled road the steep path leads you up to the Wanglspitze (2420m). Before you reach the peak with the cross the path is a little bit difficult but saved with a robe. When you stand on the peak you can see the summit station of the gondola which has a capacity for 150 persons.

The descend is on the other side of the ascend and takes you up to a graveled road. Follow this road till you come to the top station of the chairlift Lämmerbichl/Rastkogel. On the right side you come soon  to the last part of the trip. From now you have to follow the signs “Rastkogel” (2762m). The path is signed out very adequately. Stay on this path till you come to the ascent of the peak. In a very short time you reach the peak “Rastkogel”. There is already a magnificent view over the Alps. There are two different ways down. You can use the same way down as you walked up or you walk down to the Rastkogelhütte – Schwendberg.

Please have in mind the last descents of the lifts!!
