Challenging, shady tour with rewarding views and connection variant to the Haslhof snack bar and the legendary Holy Hansen trail.

Start at Hotel Krone in the quiet small village of Morter, that belongs to the municipality of Laces and turn right after the culture center and the fire station following the asphalt road towards Putzenhof. Keep left to pass by its strawberry fields and apple orchards through the National Park gate until the "Wetterkreuz". Follow the forest road with a constant gradient in the shadow of Monte Tramontana until you arrive at Morterer Leger at 1,705 m. The first part of the road is well prepared with white marble gravel, whereas the second half of the road is mainly covered with grass and moss. Having arrived, you will be rewarded with a beautiful picnic area and a nice view of Orecchia di Lepre (3,257 m). Descent on the forest road or on path 7A and the forest road until the Haslhof snack bar and the Holy Hansen trail (S2) or marble quarry.
