The tour leads from Melchtal church down to the Melchaa. You head upwards along the stream towards Tumlibach-Mur (barbecue spot) and from there on the right to the main road. Immediately afterwards the route crosses the stream. In gentle ups and downs, the path continues via Balmmatt-Untersteiglen, past a feeding manger for deer, to the car park and Stöckalp cableway terminus.

You can snowshoe back the same way or take the PostBus.
