With a view of the Sarntal Alps.
The hike leads from Riffian, at the entrance to the Passeier Valley, up to Gfeis. This small mountain hamlet is located on the southern edge of the Texelgruppe Nature Park and from the sunny slopes you can enjoy the panoramic view of the Sarntal Alps and the Merano basin.

The starting point of the hike is Riffian, at the entrance to the Passeier Valley. First follow the trail marking 3A in a westerly direction. At the next crossroads, turn left and follow the signs to the Riffianer Waalweg (Riffian irrigation channel trail). After about 10 minutes, you reach a fork in the trail, where you continue to the right and follow trail no. 21 to the Berggasthof Walde in a northerly direction (approx. 1:30 hours). From here follow the road eastwards to the next crossroads, turn right and return to Riffian via trail 21A, then 3A.
