Hiking the Kirchbachtal Valley to Ultimo (Ulten)

Directions


The initial approach is via the road that branches off into Kirchbaltal Valley near St. Pancras (St. Pankraz) in Val d'Ultimo (Ultental) Valley; continue on the high road (Höhenstraße) westwards to the Kaserbachhöfen Farms (1,451 metres, parking area). From there, follow trail markings (No. 5) along the narrow access road for the farms and Alm: it’s a long forest crossing over to the hut of the Mariolbergalm alpine pasture in Kirchbachtal Valley (1,661 m). Continue on Trail No. 3A through this beautiful, unspoilt valley all the way up to the tree line and then to the Inneren (Inner) Falkomai Alm (2,051 m; serves food); just under 2 hours from the starting point. For the descent, you can opt to take the same route of ascent (about 1.5 hours) or take the following route, via the Äußere (Outer) Falkomai-Alm: From the inner Alm, follow Trail No. 1 northeast through the hills, with has an intermediate grade; there is a safety chain at one slightly exposed point. Continue up to Falkomaisee Lake and Äußeren Falkomai-Alm (2,163 m; about 45 minutes from the inner Alm). From there, cross open terrain down to the road fork and then continue down a steep trail, Trail No. 3, through the forest into Kirchbachtal Valley, then ascending back to the Mariolbergalm hut and the starting point; about 2.5 hours from the inner Falkomai-Alm.

    Bei der Anfahrt in St. Pankraz immer Richtung St. Helena und Mariolbergalm bis zum Parkplatz fahren, denn wie angegeben Richtung Kirchbachtal ist nirgends angeschrieben!!!
