Sunny Mountain Trail

30 Km - 2.100 m altitude difference

Sunny Mountain trail – 30 km length, 2,100 m altitude difference

The start is at 9,00 o'clock at the Rathausplatz square in Naturno/Naturns, at 530 m altitude. The first few kilometers are on asphalt and gravel roads through the village of Naturno, leading to the beginning of the trails. As soon as the route reaches the first trail after approx. 3 km, there is a beautiful ascent (Path no. 39A) with an altitude difference of approx. 400 m to Unterrain Hof farm. Once there, a short asphalt road leads to the Unterwandhof farm, where the route changes back onto trails before arriving at the first descent (Path no. 26). After a fast but also somewhat crisp downhill stage of approx. 400 m altitude difference, it slowly rises again (Path no. 91) leading uphill in the direction of the Winkler Hof farm. Shortly before reaching the farm, the route turns and becomes more varied, and partly quite steep (Paths no. 39 – 2A – 2 – 8A), then leading up to the Durster Hof farm, where at approx. km 10 the first refreshment stage awaits. There then follows (Path no. 26) a stage over great uphill and downhill terrain, which trail runners will surely find enjoyable. After about 2 km along this trail, the next ascent of 600 m altitude difference (Path no. 39) leads to the Gruberhof farm, where a beautiful but also partly steep ascent (Path no. 39B – 2) towards the Texel cable car is planned. The highest point (1,584 m) of the race is reached here, followed by a beautiful trail (Path no. 24) along the Merano High Mountain Trail, which ends after about 14.5 km of the race at an asphalt road. The route reaches the Hochforch Hof farm (refreshment no. 2, km 16), before a very exciting and sudden entry to a gorge of about 1,000 steps. This ravine lives up to its name, as there really are many steep steps up and down to be completed. Once you have passed the gorge with its imposing suspension bridge and crossed the Pirchhof farm, a short stretch of asphalt follows to the Grub Hof farm, where the 3rd refreshment point awaits runners. Continuing on the Merano High Mountain Trail, the route continues along trails and over a suspension bridge to the Galmein Hof farm, then on to Innerforch Hof and Linthof farms, before leaving Path no. 24, with a long descent of approx. 750 m difference in altitude to follow. The route leads past the Patleid Hof farm, then on to the Unterstell cable car station (refreshment stage no. 4), to Höfl farm and then (Path no. 10) in the direction of Naturno. Arriving at an altitude of about 750 m, there is a nice flat trail of about 1.5 km, which leads uphill for a short time at the end and then downward again for about 200 m altitude difference. After this descent, the last ascent of about 100 altitude difference follows, before the trail and then a gravel – asphalt road lead to the finish point at Rathausplatz Naturno.

Skyrace & Just for fun

15 km - 1.150 meter of altitude difference

Naturno Skyrace – 15 km length, 1,150 m altitude difference
// 15 km
// 1.150 m altitude difference
// start: 10 am (Skyrace) and 10.15 am (Just for fun), via municipio

The start is scheduled for 10 am (Skyrace) and 10.15 am (Just for fun) in Rathausplatz square in Naturno/Naturns, at an altitude of 530 m. From there the run begins on asphalt, with the first and likely fastest kilometer leading through the village of Naturno and on to the start of the trail. At the beginning of the trail, the path immediately becomes more narrow. The run continues on a beautiful and partially steep ascent leading along the marked Path no. 6, with an altitude difference of approx. 850 m, before reaching the Grub Hof farm. It continues along the Merano High Mountain Trail no. 24, along various paths and across a suspension bridge to the Galmein Hof farm; then on to the Innerforchhof and Linthof farms, where the route departs from Path no. 24 and continues along a long descent of about 750 m altitude difference. The route leads past the Patleid Hof farm and continues to the Unterstell cable car station (refreshment point), past the Höfl farm and along Path no. 10 in the direction of Naturno. At an altitude of about 750 m, the run continues along a beautiful flat path for about 1.5 km, which climbs for a short stretch and then descends again for about 200 m altitude difference. After this descent, the final ascent follows a difference in altitude of about 100 m, before continuing along various paths and, finally, a dirt road until the arrival in the Rathausplatz square of Naturno.
