Short description

The easy, mostly wide path to the Medalges Alm pasture is highly recommended. If you then add the section to the Schlüter Hut and descend via the rustic Mühlental valley, the hiking pleasure is perfect.

Starting point of the tour

Campill

Destination of the tour

Medalges Alm, Schlüter Hut

Route description

From the car park after Campill, a wide forest road with the number 5 marking leads into the valley. After a short while you reach a fork where you continue following the number 5 in the direction of Munt d'Adagn and Kreuzjoch. The forest path now runs sometimes steeper, sometimes flatter through the forest and across mountain meadows, occasionally changing into a narrower path. Once you have left the forest behind you, you will repeatedly pass nice alpine huts that offer themselves as rest stops. However, it is also worth continuing to just below the Kreuzjoch and to the Medalges Alm, where you can fortify yourself for the rest of the tour.

Behind the hut, a steep, stepped path leads uphill again. Soon, however, it turns into an almost level path that leads along the slope. After a few slightly exposed sections with scree, you reach the Schlüter hut, which is also a good place to stop.

For the descent, choose trail number 4 to Campill, which is quite steep and stony in parts. At the end of the trail, you reach the Mühlental (mill valley), where eight old mill houses with water channels, sluices and mill wheels have been restored. After a few minutes on the asphalt road, you return to the starting point.
