Just the right turn for all those who have started with trail running. In total, only 450 meters in altitude have to be conquered here. The path leads along the Schwarzwasserbach on the first half. On the way you pass nature highlights such as the natural bridge or the boiler holes and enjoy the view of Riezlern and Hirschegg. 2-3 sections are very steep, these are best for beginners.

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.
