Technically mostly relatively easy, flowing trails lead us from Kronplatz over the summit of the Spitzhorn down towards Olang. Even the strenuous ascent to the Kronplatz summit cannot dampen our joy in view of the upcoming descent.

The long ascent on gravel paths to the summit plateau of the Kronplatz exhausts our energy right from the start. At the top, however, we are rewarded with a fantastic panorama of the Dolomites and beautiful trails. For the most part, very flowing single trails lead down from the Kronplatz to Niederolang, mostly on forest paths, but also partly on ski slopes. Only the trail from the summit of the Spitzhorn is a little rougher and more demanding at the beginning.

Destination

Kronplatz 2000 cable car valley station

Turn-by-turn directions

From the valley station of the Kronplatz 2000 cable car we drive into Reischach. Then we go up to the summit plateau of the Kronplatz (2275 m) on a road that is asphalted at first, but soon only gravelled. Here there are numerous places to stop for refreshments. From the cable car station we descend briefly on gravel to the start of the downhill trail. After the first hairpin bends, however, we turn right and reach the summit of the Spitzhorn (2173 m) via a trail. At the beginning still relatively rough, but then flowing, another beautiful single trail leads us down to a ski slope. We descend on this to a steep step. Here we turn into a relatively inconspicuous trail at the beginning. When we reach a reservoir, we continue downhill first on gravel, then on asphalt until trail no. 13 branches off to the left. From here we first follow the signs "Weg 2, 13" and then the signs "Weg 2, 9" on a beautiful trail towards Niederolang. Trail no. 9 finally leads into a forest path. Here we leave the trail, as it becomes extremely steep and technically very demanding as we continue, and follow the gravel path until we meet the Furkelpass road. After a short stretch on the road, we turn onto trail no. 5a, which is initially a trail, but soon becomes gravelled or asphalted and leads down to Niederolang. Through the village and then on the asphalted trail no. 15 back to Reischach and the cable car valley station.
