The Walser UltraTrail is part of the Walser Trail Challenge. The route length is about 65 km and 4200 Hm and starts and ends in Riezlern.
The start of the UltraTrails is in Riezlern. From here it goes via Egg, Wäldele and Küren up to the Gottesacker plateau. Over Ifen it carries on into Schwarzwassertal and follows out to the Auenhütte. Continue on a short piece of gravel road to the Upper Walmendinger Alpe and continue on to Walmendingerhorn. Over the Lüchlealpe and the Stierhofalpen in direction Grünhorn. The trail from the Grünhorn to the Starzeljoch is exposed. In the Zick Zack Trail it goes down into the Starzeltal (Duratal) and on a dirt road to the village Baad. From here, the route runs like the Walser Trail: past the Bärgunthütte it goes to the Widdersteinhütte.

The Walserbus is a convenient way to reach your starting point. Line 1 takes you to the village Riezlern. For this tour you need to get off at the bus stop “Gemeindeamt”.
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 directly by the starting point.
