From the car park at Amlach forest tavern (690m) via the steeply ascending Goggsteig to the Gogghüttl. Then follow the flat path to the Klammbrückl. (You can park here too if you want to shorten the tour and spare yourself tackling the steep Goggsteig). Then continue on the well signposted path up to Kerschbaumeralm bothy.
