A great tour to the summit of the Kleine Gitsch at over 2240 m. The ascents are not to be underestimated, but the really "tough" ones pedal through it all. The Gitschberg has a little sister that is often left out. But the fact that a rideable trail leads over these peaks makes the little Gitsch a fixed component of the author's favourite tours. By the way, "Gitsch" means "girl" in South Tyrolean. If you look at the shape of the Gitschberg from Brixen, with a little imagination you can very well work out why this mountain absolutely deserves this feminine name.
Start from Meransen and continue on the road to the valley station of the cable car. Some people like to use the service of the cable car; everyone else continues on the road to the right until the Pichlerhof. Here begins the forest road (no. 14), which leads to the old ski trail. Here the trail continues quite steeply on forest road no. 12 to the Pichlerhütte and on to the Zasslerhütte. Now comes the most difficult part up to the Joch and only a few get up without descending. The last part to the summit is no longer too steep, but still very technical. On the Kleine Gitsch you can enjoy the incomparable view over the Brixen valley basin and shortly afterwards you’ll be on the sporty trail to the Moserhütte. The trail (later 12A) starts directly below the hut and leads to the Meranser Rundweg. Turn right here until you soon return to Meransen.
