Scenic hike for those in search of great views – and for high mountain hiking enthusiasts!
The Merano High Mountain Trail n° 24 runs for almost 100 km around the Texel Group Nature Park, from farm to farm, from village to village, from valley to valley. On this stage you can get to know a short section of the Merano High Mountain Trail West! This very popular stage of the Merano High-Altitude Trail is spectacular and full of views. Legendary on the Merano High Mountain Trail is the 1000-step gorge (1000-Stufen Schlucht) with suspension bridge! The famous 1000-Stufen Schlucht: there are "only" 987 steps, but they are quite a challenge...your knees may shake a little afterwards)
If the entire stage is too long, there are several descent options into the valley, such as:
after Hochforch farm path left n° 29/39 to Plaus, or after the 1,000-step gorge before Grub farm path n° 6 towards Naturns/Naturno or after Galmein farm path left n° 24b to Unterstell cableway mountain station and with the cableway Unterstell to Naturns/Naturno.
Another highlight is the spectacular viewing platform at the mountain station of the Unterstell cableway above Naturns/Naturno. If you don't suffer from vertigo, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view over the valley! For a detour to the viewing platform, follow trail n° 24B downhill in the direction of the Unterstell cableway. Then rejoin the Merano high trail n° 24 via the same path.
