Blankets of flowers, clean mountain air, wide open views and some scrambling challenges await the eager Eagle Walk hiker in the Arlberg Mountains. 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 meadows blanket the slopes of towering mountains. Beyond the Leutkircher Hütte you’ll walk under jagged peaks and past the prominent Valluga Mountain to the Ulmer Hütte, 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.
Eagle View ·Admire the beautiful reddish soil on the trail between the Kaiserjochhaus and the Leutkircher Hütte. And don’t forget to turn your focus from the scenery to your feet as you stroll through endless fields of flowers: acres upon acres of slopes bursting with a dazzling array of wildflowers.
Eagle Kick ·The section from the Leutkircher Hütte to Kapall with some exposed areas can be treacherous in snow or adverse weather conditions and intimidating to unseasoned hikers. In many places there’s considerable exposure, but in such places you will find adequate support provided by cables firmly anchored into the rock. There is a gully beyond Bacheregg that can retain snow until the middle of July.
