After a short stretch on the cantonal road heading towards Grossdietwil, you turn right and ascend the Bodenberg then via Under Schlämpe and Kället down into a small valley and immediately back on a single trail heading upwards towards Ohmstal.
You now go down to the valley floor of the broad Wigger valley and, at the Luthern, follow a section of the Luthern trail upstream to Oberfeld. Continue towards Schötz past St. Mauritius' Chapel to the Wigger. Follow this road up the right bank of the river until its confluence with the Rot. Continue along the Rot to Ettiswil and on to the road leading to the nature reserve. Passing Castle Wyher you reach Mittler Brästenegg, where you turn right and downwards. Follow the path at the edge of the forest and tackle the difficult single trail in the Höhewald forest to Wellbrig. You then pass through the Galgewald forest down to Willisau via Wellbrig and Ankeloch.
