The cultivating path: Rural customs, alpine pastures, haymaking, cattle, dairymaids and shepherds are depicted here.
Description: From the head of the valley in the Val Casies Valley/S. Maddalena (1465m), turn right over the stream of the valley and follow the markings no. 12 up to the Pfoital Valley and the alpine tree line. Continue straight into the valley to the Pfoialm (2134m, not a refreshment point) and through the Almtal, on a comfortable road, uphill to the fork. There, turn right, and by following the markings no. 13 climb upwards into the rear Hintere Gsieser Lenke (2539m; beyond it, reach the lake Schwarzsee in just a few minutes via a trail (2455m). Continue steeply downhill, following marker no. 15, to Gartn (2240m). Here you can either turn left and follow trail no. 15a, which leads along a gentle, flower-covered path to the alpine path and down to the Unterstaller Alm. Alternatively, from Gartn you can choose the steeper trail with marker no. 15, which leads to a viewing pulpit with a beautiful waterfall and then on to the Unterstaller Alm (1673m) in the Villgratental Valley (A). It is also possible to walk it the opposite way!
