  • Höhenprofil

    In winter the Mehlsack is a popular destination for ski tourers. In summer a beautiful trail leads around the whole mountain and is a perfect round for enduring trail runners.

    The Zugertal is one of the most beautiful hiking regions in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. Always along the mountain streams there is a trail that leads enduring trail runners once around the entire Mehlsack and Spullerschafberg. A strenuous but technically easy run without exposed passages. And the views of the Zugertal, the Stierlochjoch and the Spullersee are worthwhile destinations.

    Again and again one runs directly along the Lech and the Spullerbach. There you can always put your feet into the clear water to rest.

  • Directions

    From the fishpond in Zug you first follow the Lechweg into the beautiful Zugertal valley. Always along the Lech, you follow a wonderfully flowing trail up to the Älpele. From here you follow the signs to Spullersee. The trail is beautifully laid out, but becomes increasingly steeper until you can see the dam wall in the distance. You can now either walk around the lake or you can walk over the dam wall right at the beginning of the lake and follow a narrow trail leading to the Spullerplatten climbing garden. The trail continues towards the Ravensburger Hütte and then the last few metres uphill to the Stierlochjoch. Here you have a wonderful view towards the Kriegerhorn and can pause for a moment to look towards the Spullersee. After a short rest, the trail descends and over the path from the Stierlochjoch down to the starting point of the tour.
