Hiking Trail Current Conditions: Panoramarunde
Der untere Teil des Weges vom Parkplatz bis zum Allgäuer Berghof wird von den Rollern die hier herunterkommen ziemlich zerfurcht. Das ist nicht so toll, der Weg hat tiefe Riefen.
Hazard statement
Auf dem Teerstück vom Allgäuer Berghof bis zur Station der Bergbahn sollte man sich vor den rasenden Rollerfahrern in Acht nehmen, rechts laufen !!
Weather
Das Wetter war heute super, am Berg vielleicht 25 Grad , am Parkplatz dann 30.
