Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from Moos (1339 m) one walks westwards along the valley floor (trail no. 1) to the crossroads with path no. 12. Continue along the steeper forest path towards Fortress "Heideck". One now climbs steeply up to the mountain pastures on the left in several turns on the shady forest path and on a narrow path up to the highest point of the Innergsellwiesen meadows (2065m). From there you have a wonderful view to the mighty mountain sundial of Sesto. Crossing the scree heap of rubble under the "Gsellknoten" and you reach the "Aussergsell" (2004m) The descent first leads along a wide path nr. 12 to a flat ground, where path 12 B branches off to the east down to the meadows called "Frohne" and via them to Sesto, from where we return to the starting point.

Food and provisions should be brought along, as there is no managed hut (suitable place for picnics).
