The Merano High Path, marked as number 24, is divided into two parts, one leading northwards and the other southwards. It is the only such path in the entire Alpine region and can be completed with ease in 4-6 days. The clearly-marked, well-maintained path n° 24 passes working Alpine farms, mountain guesthouses and rescue huts and is extremely popular!
