This highly varied loop passes through the lower part of the magical Oberberg valley, by quaint mountain lodges, to the Josef car park. From there, a gradual climb on a forest track passes through shady woodlands. Both the Auffang lodge and the Brandstatt lodge are well worth a visit. The beautiful Milderer mountain forest path is a great way to get back down. Passing Hotel Edelweiss follow the path along the right river bank to Schaller and back to Milders.
