You can start your cross-country tour directly in Lech at the bridge at the cross-country starting point and walk along the Lech River to Zug. Alternatively, you can take the blue local bus to Zug and get on the cross-country trail from the terminus. Up to the Älpele Inn it goes evenly up to slightly uphill. At Älpele Inn you can take a break and get some refreshments. Then take the left track in the direction of Spullerwald. A dreamlike round trip until you reach the starting point again.
