The Josef-Anton-Koch Weg leads from Stockach on the northern side of the valley to Obergiblen. The trail starts in Stockach at the pedestrian bridge over the Lech. In Stockach, sufficient free parking spaces are available at the nearby Sulzalm car park. There is also a bus stop at the parking lot. On the opposite side of the Lech a narrow path begins, which becomes steeper. It goes in constant gradient with view of the Lech to the Benglerwald. The route continues through the Benglerwald district of Bach to the Seesumpf. In between is the Modertalbach, which is crossed over a high pedestrian bridge. The district of Seesumpf takes its name from a nearby small marshy lake. After the lake swamp you reach the small hamlet of Klapf. In Klapf you have a fantastic view of the lower town centre of Bach. In Klapf the road changes again to a path and after a few meters the path leads into the forest. The Josef-Anton-Koch-Koch Weg near the outdoor swimming pool in Obergiblen is over. The walking time for this route is about 2 hours. The best way to get back to the starting point is by hiking bus. Alternatively you can also walk in the valley to Stockach.
