This one-day hike requires a good head for heights and safe footing. It begins with a ride up on the chairlift up to 2,300 metres above sea level to the "Adlerblick" viewing platform at Kapall. The destination we are aiming for is the Leutkircher Hütte, a hut serving traditional Tirolean food. Along the way hikers can look forward to lots of alpine flowers, fine views and, if they are lucky, a golden eagle circling above the Lechtal Alps.

Take the chairlift from St. Anton am Arlberg up to Kapall. From there, walk in a northerly direction and take the first turning on the left. This path is a little easier to negotiate than the "Adlerweg" slightly further up. Climb steeply in an easterly direction. Then continue on to the Almajurjoch ridge. You will then reach the Leutkircher Hütte at 2,251 metres. The descent is in a south-westerly direction through meadows and forests. At around 1,700 metres above sea level the path meets a wider trail and continues downhill next to the stream. Cross the stream on the egde of the forest and follow the tarmac road to St. Anton.
