The Elmer Kreuzspitze is a 2480 m high peak of the Lechtal Alps. The mountain lies on the Kreuzspitzkamm above the Stablalpe near Elmen. The Anhalter Höhenweg leads over the summit of the Elmer Kreuzspitze from the Stablalpe to the Anhalter Hut. The ascent to the Elmer Kreuzspitze is easiest from Elmen. The starting point is the Stablalm parking lot, where you can also park for free. The bus stop is only a few hundred metres away in the centre of Elmen. At the parking lot you take the short way to the Stabl, which you reach after about 45 to 60 minutes walking time. The trail now goes through the Stablwald forest, past a hunting lodge to the Kreuzspitzkamm and along the ridge to the Elmer Kreuzspitze. On the summit you have the possibility to continue climbing along the Anhalter Höhenweg to the middle and later to the Bschlaber Kreuzspitze. The ascent to the summit of the Elmer Kreuzspitze requires surefootedness and freedom from vertigo. In wet, snow and ice the steep grassy slopes can become slippery and an ascent is not recommended. The walking time from Elmen to the Elmer Kreuzspitze is about 3 to 4 hours (photos: Willi Weissensteiner).
