    Depuis Jausenstation Patleid il est possible de poursuivre jusqu'à Vernagt, petit centre touristique installé sur la rive d'un lac de barrage, au dessus du village de Schnals. Ce choix reduit d'autant le dénivelé et le temps de marche de l'étape suivante en direction du Col de Niederjoch et de Similaunhutte.
    Hébergement à Vernagt :
    Gasthof Obergamhof. Cette ferme auberge est située en contrebas de la digue du barrage, à proximité de la route. Bon petit déjeuner
