Turn-by-turn directions

From the Juel Pass, take trail no. 6 westwards to a fork in the trail, then, keeping on the left, continue along a forest road heading south-west. Then you continue past a former gravel quarry to a grassy hollow at the edge of the forest.

After passing the Antersasc alpine hut, continue on trail no. 6 through idyllic alpine meadows until you reach the steep trail leading up to the Puez gap (2,517 m). From the gap head briefly downhill before reaching the Rifugio Puez hut (2,475 m) (walking time: approx. 2 hours 50 minutes).

You return on the same route.
