  • Directions

    Walk from the starting point at the Rüfiplatz. Cross the river Lech over the old wooden bridge and follow the Lech-Promenade down the river to the left until you reach the main road. After a few metres at the road on the left, a narrow forest road leads steeply uphill. After a few metres, another forest road branches off to the right, which you follow uphill to the Berg parcel. At Hotel Formarin, take the asphalt road on the left which leads into a hiking trail after a few metres. Follow this road until you reach Oberlech. Through Oberlech you follow the asphalted side road which becomes a forest path at the Hotel Petersboden. Follow the forest path downhill to the left and follow the trail. This trail leads through a light coniferous forest, which again and again offers magnificent views to Lech am Arlberg and back to the starting point.
