Turn-by-turn directions

The Poststeig route "P" starts in Laion (1,093m; signposted) and leads along a dirt road ascending to the east to Ceves (1,212m; refreshments served). It continues through fields and meadows with panoramic views of the Sassolungo mountain. Above the Tanurza hamlet, the trail leads through the forest and at the Felsonnes farms it crosses the main street and then reaches S. Pietro (1,211m; refreshments served). From there, follow the partly new road (signposted) and then the ascending paved road to the Pedrutsch inn (1,210m). After the inn, a nearly flat extending forest trail leads to the south above the hermitage of Pontives to a rocky, steep forest slope.  The route leads past above Pontives and makes U-turn before reaching Vigo di Fuori. Keep right at the junction, and continue to follow the "P" route to the first houses of Vigo di Fuori, before leading to the Nevelstraße road, and then along the Bahnhofstraße road to the center of Ortisei (1234m).
