On the Ridnauner Höhenweg
Meadows and pastures beneath striking Dolomitz peaks.

From Sterzing (950 m; north car park) take the cable car up to Rosskopf (mountain station: 1900 m). From the cable car mountain station, take the wide path (marked 23) through medium-steep grassy slopes almost flat westwards towards the Kuhalm (its hut lies a little way below the path, 1897 m) and continue comfortably on a nice flat hike to the Ochsenalm (1907 m; from Rosskopf approx. 1 hour); an approx. 20-minute detour on the wide path westwards brings you to the former mine. Descent: From the Ochsenalm on marked forest path down to the Freundalm (1725 m), on the marked path, now wide throughout, through the meadow and forest down to the Witwenbrünnl (1560 m), continue down to Obertelfes (1258 m; inn), on the old Telfer path (marked, signpost »Sterzing«) off the road down to Thuins (1100 m; inn), here do not go straight down, but past the Thuiner Waldele« inn to a wayside shrine and only now turn right on a narrow road down to Sterzing; from Ochsenalm 2–2:30 hrs.
