Turn-by-turn directions

• Hiking time: 6h 40min • Trail numbers: 28, 29 • The hike starts at the car park Ranui (1370 m) near St. Magdalena. Walk on trail no. 28, a wide forest road, continually ascending through the woods until you reach a crossroads (1716 m). Turn right and after a few metres you will find the beginning of trail no. 29. Follow the serpentine, narrow and steeper trail no. 29 to reach Mittagsscharte (2597 m). The stunning view of Villnöss Valley is worth a short rest. In the Mittagsscharte, there is the access to the via ferrata which leads to the summit of the Sass Rigais. It is equipped with steel ropes and belaying with a climbing harness is strongly recommended as the trail consists of many exposed parts. Danger, falling rocks due to other mountaineers! The last few metres to the summit, you have to walk on a narrow, exposed crest which is not equipped with a steel rope. From the summit of the Sass Rigais (3025 m) you will have an impressive panoramic view of the surrounding valleys and peaks of the Dolomites.
