Route description

The best thing to do is join the trail in Maso Corto at the Lauzaun lift valley station. A bridge leads over the stream behind the hotels in Maso Corto.  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 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.
