The Roppen geological trail runs between Roppen and Haiming, through the landslide area of the Tschirgant. From the Kultursaal in Roppen you hike north on a small side road, along the railroad line. It goes under the main road and past the hamlet of Ötzbruck to where the Ötztaler Ache flows into the Inn. Here the path leads through the area of the "Area 47" leisure park until the "Geoweg Roppen" branches off to the right. Now it goes on a path, with slight ascents and descents, through a pine forest. The path is well signposted. Shortly before the industrial area of Roppen, the path leads down to the side road at the railroad line. Here follow the road to the left back to the Kultursaal.
