Hike on the Lechweg (Lech River Trail) along the Lechschlucht gorge from Warth to Lech am Arlberg.
This beautiful hike from Warth to Lech follows the alpine river above the narrow Lechschlucht (gorge) up to the sophisticated Lech am Arlberg winter sports centre, and is one of the most beautiful parts of the Lechweg.
About half-way there you can take a short detour for refreshments to the Bodenalpe, or buy local picnic products to take away from the Warther cheese dairy.
Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
Always allow enough time for your hiking tour. The specified walking times only refer to actual time spent walking. Breaks for photos and a rest need to be added to the specified times.
Make sure you find out about current weather conditions and keep an eye on weather changes. Thunderstorms can gather very quickly in the Alps.
Do not leave the designated hiking trails!
Always wear good walking boots with a robust sole, and take waterproofs with you. Don’t forget to take plenty of water with you (at least two litres per person) and to protect yourself against the sun.
