Vernuer and Gfeis have long been lonely, hard-to-reach mountain hamlets. Today, a paved road leads up to the small settlements, from which a great view is offered of the Merano area and the Sarntaler Alps.
From the parking area, head briefly toward Merano and turn right at the junction with the main road. Continue to the tourist office, traveling between this and the shop Prunner. Then head down the narrow, tarred lane to the fork in the road. Keep right (signposted "Riffianerweg"). Follow the path downhill until the tarred lane near a house becomes a bad gravel road. Proceed along this road to the bridge over the river. Turn left, cross the bridge, then travel straight on up to a sharp left turn. Continue left. At the next fork, keep right. At the Luferkeller head up to the provincial road into Passeiertal. Follow this road about 300 meters to the right until the signposted turn-off (on the left) to Vernuer and Gfeis. Follow this road until the path to Gfeis and Walde branches off at the top in a right-hand bend (sign Walde). Turn left and travel over the narrow, tarred road toward. Gfeis. At the next fork, keep right and continue to Gasthof Walde.
Drive to Schenna. Pass the bottleneck and at the next road junction (signposted Taser) head straight. Then turn right. Parking is available at the fire hall.
