Starting point of the tour
Destination of the tour
From the town of Glurns, hikers take trail no. 24 and hike southwards on a narrow country road to the small church of St. Martin at the highest point of the alluvial cone of the Glurnser Köpfl. Here, nature lovers follow the forest road, the hairpin bends of which can always be shortened via the old path.
The path is constantly slightly ascending, in some places also very steep, and leads through beautiful forest throughout. Just above the tree line, mountain enthusiasts reach the Glurnser Alm (not serviced) after a three-hour hike. Here, panoramic hikers can enjoy the sweeping views of the upper Vinschgau Valley and its north-facing mountains. The descent follows the same route.
