Situated only a spirited yodel away from the Swiss border, the Wormser Excessive Path (Höhenweg in German) is an under-the-radar basic of southwestern Austria. I used to be beneficial the path by Matthias Kodym, an Austrian nationwide who has trekked extensively each in his personal nation and world wide. Starting close to the village of Schruns, over its 20.6 km (12.8 mi) course, the Wormser Höhenweg traverses two picturesque passes and affords magnificent views of the glacially-sculpted Montafon Valley. It was the primary and shortest of 4 excessive trails I did in Austria in October 2019, the others being the Stubaier Höhenweg (see Journey Report, Information & Gear Listing), Schladming Tauern Höhenweg, and the Berliner Höhenweg (see Journey Report & Information/Gear Listing).
I cut up the Wormser Hohenweg over two days. On the primary, I walked round 5 hours and camped near the Valschaveiler Jochili (Tarptent Aeon Li pictured). On the second day, I awoke to drizzly circumstances and completed the trek a few hours later at a fog-draped Neue Heilbronner Hutte.
