From the Laghetto di Fiè Lake, a steep trail forks off towards the Tuff Alm hut. Below the Tuff, follow the signposts to “Schlern, Hoferalpl” (no. 1). A wide walking path leads below the face of the Sciliar to the freight cable car valley station. Turn left and follow trail 1 up to the entrance of the Schlernschlucht gorge and the “Peter Frag” rest stop. This is where the most beautiful part of the hike begins, the ascent on numerous wooden bridges (called Prügel in german) through the wildly romantic Sciliar gorge bordered by steep walls. Even today, the farmers from Völs still drive their cattle up to the mountain meadows every year in early summer. Finally we reach the Sesselschwaige and the Rifugio Bolzano (also called castle in the mountains). The way back is via path no. 1, which leads down the northern part of the Sciliar to Compatsch on the Alpe di Siusi. The Alpe di Siusi cable car takes you back down to the valley station in Siusi.
