Starting point of the tour
Destination of the tour
Starting from Raas, the apple hiking trail (marked red-white no. 4) leads through extensive orchards first to the centre of Natz. Here you continue in the direction of Viums. At the second road junction, hikers turn right and walk along the white-blue marked path to the Walder Tor. The trail now continues along the forest path to the Eisacktal village of Schabs and the Flötscherweiher pond.
The path there is marked red and white and bears the number 2. From here you can return to Raas or continue to Aicha. To do this, however, hikers have to go back to Schabs for a short while and walk in a westerly direction (red and white marked trail no. 8) to the main road and, at the Ladestatt petrol station, continue on trail no. 8a to Ochsenbühl and Aicha. Return to Schabs on trail no. 9a, which leads through pretty mixed forest.
