Two popular hiking destinations under the Sciliar (Schlern) Massif

Directions


Approach is from Blumau or Waidbruck to Fié allo Sciliar (Völs am Schlern), and then continuing on to the village of Umes (Ums) at 930 metres; parking on the outskirts of town. From there, follow trail markings (No. 3), first along a residential access road on sloping meadows and then continuing along a marked footpath (No. 3) through forested slopes, in quite a straight shot up to the Hofer Alpl farm (1,340 m; Alm tavern); about 1.5 hours from Umes. From the little farm, follow signs for Völser Weiher Pond along a trail through the forest, which is mostly flat, north to the broad Schlernweg Trail (marked 1), which sometimes has a light grade and is sometimes very steep down to the Tuffalm alpine farm (1,270 m, serves food). Take the old paved road (still marked No. 1) down to Huberweiher Pond and continue almost all the way to Volser Weiher Pond (1,056 m; food service; 1 hour from Hofer Alpl). Just before reaching the pond, take a sharp left and follow Trail No. 2 through the forest, partly flat and party a light downhill grade, south to Völser Bach Stream and finally along a path through the meadow to Umes; 2.5 hours from Hofer Alpl.

    Bellissima giornata di equinozio. Una stretta stradina porta in auto al paesino di Umes. Comodo parcheggio vicino alla chiesa. Primo tratto facile fino al laghetto di Fiè. Merenda su una bellissima panchina con tavolo in pietra. Salita abbastanza ripida fino alla Tuffalm su strada ancora innevata ma percorribile. La malga è ancora chiusa ma con uno spettacolare panorama ideale per il pranzo al sacco. Si prosegue verso la Hofer Alpl su sentiero ancora innevato. Dopo un ulteriore pausa di relax, ripida discesa fino a Umes.

    Bella camminata, un pò impegnativa la parte iniziale, probabilmente proprio perchè iniziale, ma l'arrivo alla Malga Tuff è da antologia!!

    Consiglio l'escursione anche con bambini. Con me e mia moglie è venuto anche nostro figlio di otto anni che ha tenuto sempre la testa dell'escursione, anche nel primo tratto in salita abbastanza "duro". Da provare.
