At the foot of the steep north face of the Kanisfluh is the alpine pasture settlement of Wirmboden with its chapel, located on a plain. You cross the Bregenzerach on the way to Hirschau. Here, you start the ascent to the tree-covered Sonnenhang with the highest points of Rosenburg and Schnepfegg (its chapel is worth avisit). You return to Schnepfau via a footpath.
