Directions
Starting from the valley head in San Maddalena/Val Casies Valley (1460m, refreshment point, parking), turn right over the stream and follow the agricultural road no. 47 south-eastwards and upwards through the Köfler Valley. At the fork with several signposts, turn right and follow the forest road no. 48 through the woods up until the Tscharnietalm (1976m, not a refreshment point). Proceed on path no. 48, south-eastwards, up to the fork and then follow the markings no. 48 A (left or rather straight), eastwards, up to the Kalksteinjöchl (2349m). Now continue on the Bonner Höhenweg, trail no. 12, on the eastern ridge, evenly crossing steep grassy slopes in a southward direction to the Pfanntörl (2511m). Now left, over the northwest ridge of the Pfannhorn, climb uphill to the summit (2663m); there are several signs for your orientation. Return: from the summit, return, at first the same way you came, to the Pfanntörl and then along the Bonner Höhenweg, on the east side of the Gaishörndl, on trail no. 8/12. Cross the steep slopes in northward direction until you reach the Gruber Lenke (small col; 2487m). Change onto the west side and follow the trail no. 44. The path starts off serpentine; it then takes you across rugged and steep terrain, and finally across pastoral slopes to the Versellalm. There is the Tolder Hütte at 1942m, somewhat lower the Hinterschuher Alm -Randlhütte, both huts offer food and drink. Then, continue on the wide agricultural road numbered 44 out through the Verselltal and finally across the Steilwald down to San Martino (1276 m). From San Martino you can take the bus for the return journey or you can hike along the View-over-the-Val Casies Valley route (30 min).
