Starting point: Camping Ötztal.

The trail runs along a short piece of woodland over fields to Oberrieder Straße, which is crossed. Next, the trail follows the right side of the Ache along an idyllic birch forest to the hamlet village Espan. Shortly before the turn in Winklen / Au, a small climb to the bridge has to be mastered. Now the trail of the Ötztaler Ache travels back to Längenfeld - to the south. Almost at the end of the round you reach the Oberrieder loop which leads past the foot of the Pestkapelle back to the Camping Ötztal.
