Route description

This stage begins at the Glieshöfe farms and leads through meadows and Waalwege irrigation channel trails and partly paved roads along the orographic left side of the valley, up to the Runhöfe farms on the other side of the valley at the village of Mazia. The path winds its way through the shady coniferous forest towards the Marseilhof farm to the Gschneier Waalweg trail. Here, hikers must attempt a descent of a few meters. The Gschneirer Waalweg trail leads through the forest and across free slopes to the group of farms of the same name above Sluderno/Schluderns, the Gschneierhöfe farms. The Birkenhof Alpine snack bar, which is located about 30 minutes below the Venosta Valley Trail, offers a welcome refreshment stop with a wonderful view of the highest mountain in South Tyrol, the Ortler. From the Gschneierhöfe continue towards Frinigo di Sotto/Unterfrinig and Frinigo di Sopra/Oberfrinig to Tanas.
