A very popular, easy hike with a rewarding goal. From the northwestern edge of the village Reschen, always following the signs for Rescher Alm alpine pasture and path no. 3. Along the bike path, passing the Mühlanderhof, across the meadows and later on the forest path passing the Tendershof. After a few hairpin bends following path no. 3B you reach the Rescher Alm alpine pasture. The alpine pasture is open in summer and winter and offers a unique view over the lake and the surrounding villages. The way back is along path no. 7, passing Vallierteck.
Alternative: For a leisurely hike to the Rescher Alm alpine pasture, you can drive through the Rojental valley to the Kopferbrücke, where the parking lot is located. The hike commences on the forest road with good access and suitable for buggies. After about an hour, following a slight ascent, passing idyllic alpine meadows, through forest clearings, you reach the Rescher Alm alpine pasture with its unique views.
