Turn-by-turn directions

From the village center of Laion (1,102m) follow the road in the direction of S. Pietro to the fork leading to Fraina - S. Pietro. There the Mitterweg trail (sign with flower symbol) forks right at Dorfgasser alley and then continues eastward as meadow trail on the slope below the main street. You cross several small woods with river trenches (small Kneipp facility) and ascending slightly you will reach the small hamlet of Tanurza (1,187m) At the fork in the road east of the village, trail no. 34a ascends and joins Poststeig trail.
