looped trail Maso Corto/Kurzras
This is an interesting and easy looped trail in Maso Corto. During the winter months, the beauty of the end section of the Schnalstal Valley can be discovered during a winter hike along this well marked and tracked trail. Depending on the snow situation, the tour is also suitable for beginners with snow shoes.
The best thing to do is join the trail in Maso Corto/Kurzras at the Lauzaun cable car. A bridge leads over the stream behind the hotels in Maso Corto/Kurzras. Continue towards the sparse forest, crossing through the sun-kissed meadows below Wieshof farm. Just about at the level of the Marchegghof farm opposite, a signpost indicates the viewing point “Belvedere”, where there is a wonderful view down into the valley. Back on the trail again, hike into Marcheggtal Valley in a loop, before reaching Gerstgras, and the opportunity to take a break and refreshments. After crossing the street, the winter trail passes by distinctive rocks and on to Marchegghof farm that is open for snacks all year round, and is the main film location for the multi-award winning Alpine western “Das finstere Tal” (The Dark Valley) with Sam Riley, Tobias Moretti and Paula Beer. Some of the film sets are still there today. Höfestraße will take you back to the road and onto the trail through the meadows and on to the Lazaun lift.
