3 hours without mountaineering difficulties.
A branch path leads from the municipal office to the cycle path, which leads out of the valley along the Bregenzerach.
At the bike bridge straight ahead towards Hotel Tannahof to Argenstein.
A moderately steep ascent leads through a light forest over the Ahornenvorsäß - Feursteinalpe to the Alpengasthaus Edelweiß.
Here, one leaves the goods road and enters a narrow mountain hiking path that leads up to Kanisfluh.
The descent takes place first on the same route, but at the fork in the path you choose the path towards Roßstelle.

From there take the bus (line 40) back to Au.
The bus stop is located in the town centre near the Hotel Sonne, approx.
10 minutes walk from the valley station.
