Turn-by-turn directions

From the centre of Laives/Leifers, at the crossroad, you walk along Via Pietralba for about 4 km into the Brantental valley until you cross the river and reach the "Zur Mühle" inn. Until here the road is asphalted. From the inn, path no. 12 climbs steeply northwards until after 10 minutes you reach the "Schwabhof" inn (approx. 700m). After a short ascent, a partly narrow but well-secured path leads through the sunny porphyry walls of the Brantental valley. After approx. 1 hour and approx. 900 metres altitude difference you reach a magnificent vantage point, where the view covers the entire Adige Valley. From there a wide path, shaded by chestnut trees, leads past the "Hocheggerhof", on to the "Brunnerhof" and then to the "Steinerhöfen", a double farm with chapel. The walk from "Schwabhof" to here takes about 2 hours.

From the "Steinerhöfen" farm follow the path nr. 11 to the left, past the "Tschuegg" farm, and back to Laives/Leifers. This path crosses the asphalted Breitenbergerstreet several times during the descent and leads into Weissensteinerstreet at the Grüner Baum hotel.
