Rio di Pusteria|Mühlbach (777 m)

Turn-by-turn directions

From Rio di Pusteria (777 m) cross the main road on the way to Rodengo, also signposted as route no. 7. Through a tunnel (with pavement), descend down to the dam wall (710 m) following the slope ahead as far as the first bend. Then bear right and head south on trail no. 7. Keep to the right of the bends, passing the Liner and Planatscher farms to reach the Heidenhof farm (676m, at the lowest point of the tour). Now follow trail no. 1B to the left. On arriving at trail no. 1, continue uphill through the forest to the settlement of Rodengo/Villa (884 m; Information Office). Near the parking lot, the little church and Rodenegg Castle are both worth visiting. On the way back follow trail no. 11 that branches off from no.1 to the Planatscherhof farm, from where the road leads to Rio di Pusteria.
