We start our tour at the new Kärnten Therme in Warmbad and follow the main road for around 100 metres, and then turn off left. We follow the path behind the Hotel Warmbaderhof and continue towards the Römerweg (Roman Way). Our route takes us south-westwards past the Napoleonwiese meadow and around the Graschelitzen until we come to Oberfederaun. We turn left when we reach the Schütter Straße and follow this road until we have come through a small wood. Then a farm track leads to the right – we follow this leaving the motorway on our left. We go around the “Schütt” in an arc and follow the trail until we come to the village of Oberschütt. From here the trail continues along the Schütter Straße, on which after a short wooded stretch we once again come to the River Gail. From now on we follow the course of the river westwards until we reach the Almgasthof Schütt inn. After around 2 kilometres on the Schleusenweg trail we come to a stretch of the Gail Valley railway, which we accompany for a short way. Via the smaller villages of Förk and Saak we come to Nötsch, with its attractive Wasserleonburg Castle. In Nötsch we turn off left and cross the railway tracks. From here it is only around 600 metres to the bridge over the Gail, after which keeping straight on we come to our destination of Feistritz an der Gail.
