This itinerary, steep but very easy, takes us in about 1 hour walk through silver fir, spruce and Scots pine woods to the mountain hut Potzmauer, a hut located in a lawns hollow surrounded by fir woods.

This hut was once an alpine cottage and was abandoned after the farm breeding disappeared in the valley. It was bought and rebuilt by the Municipality of Grumes (now Altavalle), which entrusted Roberto Leonardi for its management.

This hut is a stopping point to have a meal or overnight and a midpoint for longer hikes to other interesting places like the peat bogs of the lake Lac del Vedes or the lake Lago di Valda or to the lake Lago Santo.

Author’s recommendation

Stopping at the mountain hut for lunch or just a piece of cake and then relax on its lawn is almost a must.
