A very special climb. The ascent via the quiet asphalt road to Spiluck may hardly convey how "restless" the descent via the Peissersteig will be. An eternal up and down, a bit of pushing, resting, a bit of carrying, swearing ... the Peissersteig has it all: but it has something very special ...
Start in the centre of Vahrn (1) and take the little-used asphalt road into the Schalder valley. At the turnoff to Spiluck (2), turn right and continue uphill to Spiluck (3). At the Hanserhof farm turn right onto a dirt road and at the Spilucker Platte (4) enjoy the breathtaking view of the Brixen valley basin, the Plose and the foothills of the Dolomites. And now it’s time to go: up, down, zig, zag ... the Peissersteig trail makes you sweat a lot before it gets a bit more flowy at Obersalcher (5) on trail 3B. As soon as you reach the cycle path, turn right past the Vahrner See lake (6) (you can also stay on the cycle path) and return to the starting point in Vahrn (1).
