How to get there:

Inntal highway to Wörgl and further up to the Wildschönau. Via Niederau, Oberau to Auffach and through the village further behind into the valley towards Schönangeralm. Shortly after the road crosses the stream, there is a turnoff to the left over a small wooden bridge with a few parking possibilities.

Route description
Starting point:

Wooden bridge to the left, approx. 1,8km before the Schönangeralm Inn

Ascent:

From the bridge, depending on snow or road conditions, already on skis or first on foot, follow the road uphill to the farm-house after the 2nd bend.  From here directly eastwards the meadows up to the next farm which you pass on the left and aim for the right upper forest edge. Now you meander up through the meanwhile steeper forest belt, the steepest spot is bypassed in a small curve to the right. Even before it gets exhausting, you are already through and have reached the meadows of the Koberalm. We keep to the right and quickly reach the alp building at about 1440m.
Continue in direction east southeast over the beautiful, gentle terrain, pass the next alpine hut on the left and continue until the flat basin between Schwaigberghorn and Breiteggern opens at about 1760m. Here we turn right sharply and climb over a small steep step onto the wide ridge, which leads easy up to the summit in an southward direction.
From the large summit plateau one has a good overview of the surrounding, also more demanding tour destinations of the Wildschönau.

Descent:

Along the ascent route or to the west over the beautiful, ideally angled slopes to the Breiteggalm (1530m) and from there keeping left through the lighter forest aisle directly down to the Gasthof Schönangeralm (alternatively right on the summer trail through the forest).
