Very varied round hike through the Hirschegger district Wäldele with panoramic views of the valley, forest passages and creek crossings.
From the hustle and bustle of the ski area on Heuberg and Parsenn you hike into the quiet Wäldele. For a short time you will feel far distant from civilization. After that passage refreshment stops possible in Wäldele at Alpenhotel Küren and at Gasthof Hammerer.
At the sports field in Au, we recommend a detour to the natural bridge. Turn left onto the winter hiking trail next to the cross country trail (just under 10 minutes on foot)

The Walserbus is a convenient way to reach your starting point. Line 1 takes you to the village Hirschegg. For this tour you need to get off at the bus stop "Walserhaus".
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 close to the starting point.
