This rewarding circular hike leads from the mountain hamlet of Spiluck in the Schalderer Tal Valley near Vahrn/Varna to the Scheibenberg (1,948 m) and back via the Zirmaitalm mountain pasture. The view from the Scheibenberg opens out on to the Pustertal Valley and the entire valley basin of Brixen/Bressanone as well as the mountains of the Puez-Geisler group.

Author’s recommendation

If you still have enough time and energy, try climbing the Karspitze peak (2,517 m) from the Zirmaitalm (1,891 m).

Turn-by-turn directions

The moderately difficult hike begins at the fire station in the hamlet of Spiluck (1,325 m), in the Schalderer Tal Valley. Follow the access road to the Gasthof Ortner Inn (rest stop) and take trail no. 2/A on a partially easy path through a wooded slope along a well-designed route up to the top of the Scheibenberg (1,925 m).

This is time for a well-earned rest stop with a fantastic view of the mountains. Continue along trail no. 2/A through the woods on the flat summit of the Scheibenberg towards the northern face, then descend to the west down to the Spilucker Scharte ridge (1,818 m). The trail leads slightly uphill through the high forest to the Zirmaitalm mountain hut (1,891 m).

The way back is to the east on trail no. 2, down to the Spilucker Bach brook and Steinwiesalm mountain hut. Follow the forest track to the Gostner Inn (1,380 m, rest stop) and the Höfestraße farms road back to the starting point.
