This hike starts out easy, crossing grassy slopes, and then comes to a via ferrata (Klettersteig) climbing route in the middle (this is short and not difficult); in the western section of the trail, within sight of the beloved Odle (Geislergruppe) Massif, there is good section crossing Dolomite scree, going down steep, before it runs almost flat again.

Directions


Ascent: starting out from Selva (Wolkenstein) in Val Gardena (Gröden) at 1,537 metres: the best bet is by car to the parking lot at the entrance to Vallunga (Langental) Valley at 1,625 metres. Stay with signage for Trail No. 14, flat or just slightly ascending, which leads into the valley, partly across grasslands, partly through the forest, then over scree and grassy slopes, and finally through a rocky little valley to Rifugio Puez (Puezhütte) mountain hut (2,475 m; operating in summer; 3 hours from the parking area). High Trail: From Rifugio Puez, continue following Trail No. 2 (initially, also No. 16), which is a mostly flat hike west towards the last hollow (2,450 m), then a moderate ascent up to a rocky ridge (approx. 2,570 m) and a short via ferrata (Klettersteig) climbing route (not difficult; good safety ropes) down into the Forces de Sielës wind gap (2,505 m). From there, continue on Trail No. 3 westward, steeply down into Cislestal Valley and through it, some of it almost flat, out to the Rifugio Firenze (Regensburger Hütte) mountain hut (2,037 m, operating in summer; 2.5 hours from Rifugio Puez). Descent: From Rifugio Firenze, stay with markings for Trail No. 3 along a wide path down the valley to a fork (approx. 1,870 m). Make a left here, and there is a short ascent, not too steep, up to the Juac Hütte mountain hut (1,903 m; operating in summer). Continue on Trail No. 3 at a moderate grade down towards Selva, and then turn left to the parking area; 2 hours from Rifugio Firenze.
