Impressive rock formations in the Sesto valley rise into the air above the forest and above the hiking trail.

From Bad Moos in Sesto (1362 m) first take the cable car up to the Rotwandwiesen (1925 m; two restaurants here). From the top station of the cable car, descend briefly into a depression (watch out for skiers, ski slope area!) and on the left side of the ski slope up to the start of trail 18 (signpost; 1950 m). Now always on this wide forest path, which is paved in winter, at the beginning and later slightly downhill, for long stretches in a flat, long hike through larch and spruce forests and past an alpine hut southwards to the Kreuzbergpass (1636 m; refreshments available here); from Rotwandwiesen 2:30 hrs. descent (unless you use the bus): From the Kreuzbergpass, take the marked winter hiking trail that branches off to the right a little north of the pass (it is also a cross-country ski trail; M 13 A, later M 0), descending slightly in parts, level in others, and at forks in the trail always follow the signs “Talstation Rotwandwiesen” and follow the marked path through the forest
