The level trail leads from the Längenfeld sports center along a short stretch of forest across fields to Oberrieder Straße, which you cross. The trail continues on the right side of the Ache along an idyllic birch forest to the hamlet of Dorf-Espan. Shortly before the turning point in Winklen/Au, there is a slight incline to the bridge. Now the trail follows the Ötztaler Ache back to Längenfeld - heading south. Almost at the end of the round you reach the area of ​​the night trail, which leads back to the starting point past the foot of the plague chapel.
