Descent: From Wolfsgruben, follow Trail No. 5 on a narrow asphalt road through the forest down in the direction of Signato. Tip: before reaching the meadows, there's a sign for the Erdpyramiden (lit: earth pyramids); take a little detour to the right, and you'll have a unique view.  From Signatio, descend on the same trail back to Rencio;  2.5 hours from Costalovara.
