- Gstüatalpe training run
A wonderful trail running route, especially for beginners in trail running. This round is also perfect as an evening training session or a tour to get started.
This training round is one of the most popular training rounds of the Lechers. After all, you can not only spend a lot of time on this tour, but at the same time you are in the middle of the most beautiful nature and can enjoy moments of mountain solitude intensively. The view down to Lech von der Gstüat Alpe is unparalleled anyway.
Beginners in trail running can try to run most sections, professionals use the steep ramps for interval sprints.

More info & links:
From the centre of the village, you first head towards Omesberg and follow the signs towards Omeshorn. The forest path becomes quite steep at Waldeshöhe and the pulse rises accordingly. On the first hilltop the path narrows to a wonderful trail, which you always follow in the direction of Gsüat Alpe. Shortly before the Alpe (a side trip to this Alpe is always worthwhile, however, since one can enjoy a wonderful view to Lech), it goes down to Zug. From Zug, one follows the Lechweg back to the centre of the village.
