The Holzgauer Muttekopf is the name of a 2431 m high peak of the Peischel group in the Allgäu Alps. The grass mountain lies east of the Wildmahdspitze. The easiest ascent to the mountain starts in Holzgau near the church. Sufficient free parking spaces are also available there. From Holzgau it goes along the road into the front Gföll. (Gföllberg ski lift) A narrow path starts there and leads immediately in constant gradient in the direction of Holzgauer Muttekopf. Sometimes the path or markings are difficult / not visible at all. At the avalanche barriers you reach the Gumpensattel, and a little higher up the Vordere Mutte. It goes along a wide grass ridge to the back of Mutte and then up the eastern summit slope. In the area from the front to the back of Mutte some sheep of the Lechtal farmers graze during the summer. The summit of Holzgauer Muttekopf offers a very good view of the Heilbronner Höhenweg opposite. The weather should be dry because of the steep grass flanks. From the summit of Holzgauer Muttekopf you can climb over the west ridge to Wildmahdspitze. The ascent to Holzgauer Muttekopf requires surefootedness, alpine experience and freedom from vertigo. The way is partly bad or not at all to recognize (there are no markings)! During the week the path to Holzgauer Muttekopf may not be used from 8 am to 5 pm due to construction work on the avalanche barrier (as of August 2013). Signs along the way point this out.
