On the col on the northern end of Trodena/Truden the forestry trail "Praglasir" (no.2) diverts from the land road. We walk north-west, keep going straight ahead at the sharp turn which goes to the left (no. 2a) and get to the "Hochwand", a steep scarp on 1.301m. Now we are in a typical alpine scene: alpine roses, creeping pines, mountain-avens, saxifrage and clematis can be admired on the rocky escarpments. The panoramic view extends over the mountain chain of the "Lagorai", the "Schwarzhorn" and "Weißhorn", the Alps of the "Zillertal", the "Texelgruppe" and the Valley of the "Etsch". Now we walk through fir and mixed forest (path no. 2) to the "Cisloner Alm", an alpine cabin on 1.250m which is open for guests in the summer and winter. We get back to Truden on the path no. 1.

With baby-buggy you arrive to the "Cisloner Alm" only on the forest road from the village (following path no.1 ´for 1 km)
