Follow the trail towards Diebsöfen/Schleier Wasserfall. Continue past the waterfall, climb the ladders toward Granderalm and hike on to Ackerlhütte (open on weekends only; beverages ONLY - no food!). The trail winds through pine dwarfs to Niedersessel, the access point to Maukspitze. Climb the rock face by following the red-white-red marks; there are some iron grips at the most difficult parts. At Niedersessel follow another scree trail towards Maukspitze. There is a bit of rock scrambling inolved to reach the meadows of the southeast ridge of Maukspitze but the trail is not very difficult. After a short traverse to the west you reach the summit via a rock chute (easy rock scramble) and some steps on the east ridge. The views from Maukspitze are absolutely stunning!
