To the "little sister" of the Gitsch.
A great tour to the summit of the Kleine Gitsch at over 2240m. The ascents are not to be underestimated, but the really "tough" ones pedal through it all.

Start from Meransen (1) and continue on the road to the valley station of the cable car (2). Some people like to use the service of the cable car; everyone else continues on the road to the right until the Pichlerhof (3). This is where the forest road (no. 14) begins, which leads to the old ski trail (4). From here the trail continues steeply on forest road no. 12 to the Pichler hut (5) and on to the Zallinger hut (6). Now comes the most difficult part up to the Joch (7) 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 (8) you can enjoy the incomparable view over the Brixen valley basin and shortly afterwards you’ll be on the sporty trail to the Moser Hütte (9). The trail (later 12A) starts directly below the hut and leads to the Meranser Rundweg. Turn right here until you soon return to Meransen (1).
