Blankets of flowers, clean mountain air, wide open views and some scrambling challenges await the eager Eagle Walk hiker at Arlberg Region. Though the hike is hard, it requires no technical expertise as needed on Stage 23. You'll be in a true Alpine environment with gorgeous scenery, where rolling Alpine meadows blanket the slopes of towering mountains. Beyond Leutkircher Hut you’ll walk under jagged peaks and past prominent Valluga Mountain to Ulmer Hut, which provides a perfect rest stop for hikers. Once replete and replenished, you’re off for the final descent to St. Christoph am Arlberg. Having tackled some 320 awesome kilometres of hiking, this is where the Eagle Walk comes to an end for thru-hikers. Getting to the destination is a perfect cause for celebration!
Eagle View ·Admire the beautiful reddish soil on the trail between Kaiserjochhaus Lodge and Leutkircher Hut. And don’t miss to turn your focus from the scenery to your feet as you'll stroll through endless fields of flowers—acres upon acres of emerald slopes burst with a dazzling display of wildflowers. But it's hard to stay focused on these brilliant floral arrangements when its jaw-dropping scenic sideshow is dominated by stunning views in all directions.
Eagle Kick ·The scramble section from Leutkircher Hut to Kapall with some exposed areas can be treacherous in snow or adverse weather conditions and intimidating to an unseasoned hiker. In many places there’s considerable exposure, but invariably in such places you will find adequate cable support. There is a gully beyond Bacheregg that can retain snow until late in the season.
