Harbour of Gemeier.
In a steep zigzag ascent (no. 5) through the forest you reach the anticline dividing the valleys of Tires and Ega

The hike starts at St. Zyprian opposite at Hotel Cyprianerhof in the Tiers/Tires Valley and leads to the harbour of Gemeier. There you cross a wooden bridge and follow the sign-post for "Zefaller Hof". In a steep zigzag ascent (no. 5) through the forest you reach the anticline dividing the valleys of Tiers/Tires and Eggental/Ega. Soon after, you'll reach Wolfsgrube/Fossa del Lupo, which is still well preserved. From here you hike on comfortable paths to the nearby Schillerhof, where you can have a break and enjoy some traditional food. You hike on the almost flat path no. 1 along the ridge in the direction of Rosengarten/Catinaccio and after about 1.5 hours you'll reach Niger Pass. From Niger Pass you descend to the Tiers/Tires Valley on path no. 1A and return to the point of departure.
