The nature trail is an alternative route to the broad gravel path that leads directly to the Ifenhütte. The path runs through forests and meadows, past kraut and many beautiful flower meadows in spring and summer. The path meanders under the Ifen-Bahn route and you get out directly at the Ifenhütte. With hiking boots, the path is firm in dry weather, back it's either the same way or on the gravel road to the right of the Ifenhütte - so to speak as a circular route.

Getting there

 Most routes from Germany lead to Ulm before carrying on along the A7. Take the Allgäu junction over a section of the A980 to the Waltenhofen junction, then take the 4- lane B19 via Sonthofen and Oberstdorf to Kleinwalsertal. From Austria (Vorarlberg) and Switzerland you reach the Kleinwalsertal via the Bregenzerwald (Hittisau) – Riedbergpass – Fischen – Oberstdorf. From Tyrol the fastest route is over the A7 to Kempten carrying on along the B19 direction Oberstdorf. A motorway vignette is not required to reach the valley.

A parking area (fee required) is located close to the starting point.
