Thanks to its 3 km length and minimal elevation difference, the Walten cross-country ski run is well suited to both children and learners. However, the trail also attracts more advanced skiers for its fast laps. In just a few minutes, you can reach the trail from Valtina/Walten from where it takes only 10 min to S. Leonardo/St. Leonhard (± 10 km). The cross-country ski run remains open and is free of charge.
Below the village of Valtina/Walten, the cross-country ski run at the bottom of the valley crosses gentle meadows. Starting at the car park, the trail branches off on a wide loop across the meadow to the left of the valley. It then leads across a bridge to the Stockit Winter Park on the right of the valley before extending into the valley as far as the Hofschenke Auerhof Tavern. The trail leads out of the valley and back in again. The ascent is to a solitary farmstead and back out of the valley after completing a wide arc. Unlike the quick ascent, the return to the starting point is a leisurely glide down a slight gradient.
