The hike starts after the ascent with the Lünerseebahn directly at the mountain station of the Lünerseebahn. From the Douglass hut you hike to the left on the Lünersee circular trail over the mighty Lünersee dam wall. Follow this trail until you reach the turnoff to the Lünerkrinne. From here, the trail continues along the Lüner Weg and the Gipsköpfleweg directly to the Heinrich-Hueter Hütte. The Heinrich-Hueter hut is ideal for an extensive rest before returning to the Lünersee along the same path.
