The trailhead is at the hamlet of Assing on the northern slopes of the Lesachtal Valley. Follow the signs (mark 9) "Almwanderweg".

    From the trailhead at Assing follow the sign "Almwanderweg", marked "9" to the east. The trail runs through a dense forest without any views until you reach Oberrasteralm. From there turn north onto a forest road which will take you to Motalm. Here turn to the east for some 300m (direction Grifitzb├╝hel), but turn north again onto the final ascent route. It runs along a dent in the Lumkofel South face and climbs towards a weakly pronounced saddle to the east of the summit block. The climb runs along grassy trails and is rather steep.

    From the saddle head east trail-lessly until you reach the Lumkofel real summit. The summit Cross is located to the south.


    Essential Gear


    Usual hiking gear is sufficient. I would recommend hiking sticks.
