From Linthal to Tierfed, also possible by taxi or car.
From Tierfed follow the mountain road southwards and cross the famous Panten Bridge to Hinter Sand (1300 m). From here a new route: bypass the rockfall zone beneath Ochsenstock by crossing north of the Oberstafelbach stream and later returning south of the stream (ca. 1430 m) to join the original zigzag path with its many bends which leads up to Ober Sand.
Continue along the marked hiking path into the valley to Sandpassweidli. After this it climbs more steeply via increasingly rocky terrain; finally over snow fields to gain the hut (2940 m).
