Beautiful hiking trail which brings you to the border between Liechtenstein and Austria. You will be able to spot Swiss, Austrian, and Liechtenstein Alps from the ridgeline. It's better to do this trail in the spring/summer when you can take a lunch stop at Pfälzerhütte before continuing the descent. We did this in the fall (Nov 21) when there was more snow on the trail so it took longer to complete and was more strenuous.

Better to do this hike in the spring or summer when the trail is clear of snow.
If you do attempt this in late fall, be sure to bring microspikes, gaters (to protect your boots from the snow), and warm layers.
Must be sure-footed without fear of vertigo.
In the fall, this is more of a T4 hike.
