Easy hike in Val Badia (Gadertal) Valley

Start off at the small parking area just outside the Ciurnadù Inn (about 1,600 m; slightly higher, there is a larger parking area). From there, follow signs for Pares: first you’ll take a broad trail (No. 15) through the forest and meadows until you reach a footpath (No. 16) that branches off to the left; take this trail, which runs through the forest, across mountain meadows, and past hay sheds, steeply up to the next fork. Continue on Trail No. 16 up through the forest up to the last hut at some 2,000 metres in altitude. From there, you will gradually leave the forest and mountain pine behind, continuing steeply up the partly somewhat rocky and exposed path up the grassy southern ridge of the mountain. Follow the ridge, along Trail No. 16, without any problems, up to the cross on the southern summit (2,384 m; the nearby highest point is at 2,396 m and also within easy reach; 2.5 hours from the parking lot). Descent: follow the same route of ascent (a good 1.5 hours).
