Winter hiking trail "Spielhahnweg" | Wald am Arlberg

This winter hiking trail starts at the mountain station of the Sonnenkopf cable car and continues along the ski slope crossing the drag lift with a subsequent slight ascent to a flat high plateau. Continue in a westerly direction partly along the northern edge of the terrain to the western end point. Very sunny and extremely quiet area with numerous resting benches and magnificent views of the Lechtal Alps as well as Walgau, Klostertal and up to the Arlberg.

Author's recommendation
