From the center parking place in Oetz cross the road and walk up to the church. You pass by the church and follow the forest trail to the viewing platform "Hexenplatte". A witch is said to have wandererd through the area. She left her footprints on a rock - the "Hexenplatte". 

You come back to Oetz the same way or you turn right at Steinweg and walk down on the small way to the village center.
