Ifen Wäldele Map

Take the blue Piste 5 down to where the hiking path ends and you see a bench on your left. If possible, join the hiking path on the last few metres. There is a second bench set back a little bit. Behind that, there is a small hill you'll have to climb, and then you drop into the Gottesacker plateau. Find your line between the hills, and at the end of the plateau you drop into the trees (Wäldele). Follow the hiking path all the way down to the ski de fond track, and then follow that to the street. There is a bus stop right next to the bridge that takes you back to Riezlern.
