N.B. Our destination, the Mariol alpine hut, is known in German by two names: Mariolbergalm, or Falkomai-Kuhalm. We park near the Kaserbach mountain farms, or just before the no-through-road gate. We go up the forest track signposted 9A. We continue without much difficulty through beautiful woods. From time to time there are lovely views looking into the valley and we catch a glimpse of the Alpe, di Naturno area and the Guardia Alta. We go around almost the whole Monte Mariol until, after a pleasant hike of about an hour, we reach the impressive Mariol alpine hut (1,661 m). Here we can stop for refreshments while the kids have the opportunity to play. In winter it is lovely to go down on a sledge! Do make sure the alpine hut is open during the cold season. Those who wish to continue can walk all the way to the Falkomai di Dentro alpine hut (2,051 m) and then to the Falkomai di Fuori alpine hut (2,136 m). Return via the same route.
Parking is available along the road, or there’s a small car park at the end of the access road (gate).
Along the Val d’Ultimo to San Pancrazio, from here go right up the Valle del Rio della Chiesa (Kirchbachtal) as far as the Kaserbach mountain farms (1,451 m).
