Snowy Loop Hike to Moschwaldalm Mountain Hut

General description

Romantice hike through the snowy winter woods, away from the bustle of the Meran 2000 ski area.

Route description

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.
