    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.
