Along the Waal water channel of Val Senales (Schnalstal) Valley, to Juval Castle


The starting point is the village centre of Ciardes (Tschars) at 625 metres. Follow Trail No. 1A:  after 20 minutes, you'll reach the Schnalswaal Trail (signposted). Keep right, following Trail No 3. running almost flat and occasionally slightly uphill, along the Waal water channel, heading east to Sonnenhof Tavern and continuing on to Schlosshof Tavern. From there, following a scenic little trail, you will reach Juval Castle after another 20 minutes. Total walking time from Ciardes is 1.5 hours. Return on the brick road marked Trail No. 1 to Sonnenhof and onto the Stabener Schnalswaal, another little channel with trail running alongside, that you'll cross. Turn right and head west until you reach the end of the canal. A wider trail takes you on to Falzrohr Farm, past a few scattered inns and taverns and eventually on a small paved road back to Ciardes.

    bellissima passeggiata in mezzo ai boschi, sulle rive di questi canali caratteristici della Venosta.
