The irrigation channel paths
, Waalwege in German, are popular hiking trails in Venosta Valley which run along the mountains without significant slopes. The paths run parallel to narrow, winding waterways, which were once used to irrigate the local fields. Without these irrigation channels there would have been regular droughts due the Venosta Valley's dry climate.
Today the irrigation channel paths in Venosta Valley can be walked throughout the year, and offer a great view of the majestic surrounding mountain range and valley. The paths are popular hiking trails
for families, moderate hikers and everyone who wishes to enjoy the unique flora and fauna in the entire valley.
