This is an easy and esthetically very rewarding walking trail offering impressive landscape views that will take you to the little church of St. Helena, a sacred alpine structure with gothic frescos dating back to the 15th Century.

Pessima. La strada/sentiero non è male con bei panorami, ma una volta arrivati alla Chiesa la delusione è totale: tutt'intorno è pieno di macchine, sembra di essere in un brutto parcheggio di un supermercato. Le panchine di fronte alla Chiesa, di solito destinate ai "viandanti", sono state carpite dal Maso Kreuzhof per cui ci si può sedere a patto di mangiare o bere qualcosa sul tavolo pieno di cacche che vedete in foto.
