You start at the parking in the center of oetz and walk to the cable car station at the end of the village. Walk up to a small chapel "Kalvarienberg" and from there continue to "Ebele". The viewing point offers a beautiful panoramic view over the village Habichen.  A steep trail will lead you down toward another viewing point and then to Habichen. Be cautious, it can be slippery at times.  
In Habichen cross the road by the Hotel Waldhof where you turn left into the forest again. 

The easy, romantic trail leads you towards the river. Along the river you walk back to Brandach-bridge and from there you will get back to the village center.

When you leave the forest and reacht the river, you can first turn left and walk another 10 minutes to "Weller-bridge".
