Turn-by-turn directions

This loop trail through snowy winter woods starts in Hafling/Avelengo on the Nusser parking place. From there the trail no. 15B leads to the Mittelberger Höfe farms. After the bridge, follow trail no. 15 up to the tranquil Moschwaldalm Mountain Hut (closed in winter). The return trip follows trail no. 51 down to the Falzeben parking lot. The final segment can be done on foot along Trail No. 14 or with the bus back to Hafling.

Under normal snow conditions, this route is easy to handle; suitable footwear or snowshoes are still recommended, however Moschwaldalm Mountain Hut is closed in winter but there are places to eat in Falzeben.
