From the village center of Berwang, walk towards “Rinnen” along the main road. Turn right at the chapel just behind the church and follow the sign saying “Fußweg Rinnen”. The trail winds through meadows and groves down to Thanellerkar Lift, passes a small lake and runs parallel to the main road down to Rinnen. Having passed the sign-post of Rinnen, bear towards “Stausee” and “Rieden” at the chapel/small church. A paved road takes you through this tiny residential area and gradually descends to a sharp left turn in the road; here the trail leaves the paved road and continues on a forest road that is signposted with “Stausee” and “Rieden” as well. Walk into Rotlechtal Valley through woods and down to Rotlech Reservoir. Pass the reservoir and follow the headwaters of Rotlech River and its canyon on the right hand side through the valley (on a relatively level path). When you'll reach another junction, keep the same direction, and continue ahead on the left trail that soon descends. Walk down until you reach the hamlet of Rieden and a paved road; turn left onto a dirt road at the wayside shrine. After a short section through meadows, this trail reaches the exit of Rotlech Canyon. Walk out and turn right onto the road, cross Lech River and walk through the underpass until you get to the destination end of this hike, Weißenbach.
