Turn-by-turn directions

From the Maria Trens pilgrimage site (937m) follow the dirt road no. 2A to the southeast to the hamlet of Valgenauna (1,053m), with its distinctive Valentinskirche church on the hill. Route no. 2A leads from there along mostly paved roads, around a pair of ridges to a grassy area near the hamlet of Flanes di Sotto (1,289m). From there follow trail no. 3A down the eastern side and past a farmstead towards the Senge Bach ditch (1,090m). Route no. 2 follows the direction of the gorge, the so-called Himmelreich, a narrow passage also located at the exit to the Maulsertal Valley. From there a paved road leads along the stream to Mules (940m). Return along route no. 2B (signposted as Römerweg), which branches off in the town to the right, leading across the bridge and traveling along forest and field paths to Valgenauna. Follow there, take the now-familiar route no. 2A back to Maria Trens
