From the Umhausen - Neudorf car park, you can walk comfortably across the wide forest trail to the junction of Fundus Valley (left) and Leierstal (right). Continue on the right and after about 2.5 walking hours you reach the Vordere Leierstalalm (farmed). From there, continue along the road for approx. 700 m, before turning left into the hiking trail. This leads now over some steeper terrain up, one is rewarded with a wonderful prospect. The lake is very worth seeing, right behind the hut.
