Sesto - Moso

Walking paths in Sesto:
Forest path into the Fischleintal Valley
Near the main square of Sexten cross the "Schiessstandweg" Bridge, go 50 meters up to a barn, turn left and follow the path between the fences. At the edge of the forest turn left and continue along the fields until you reach a broader walk coming from Moos. Going uphill you come to the ruins of fort Haideck . The path is flat now and leads you through the forest, then through meadows and finally through mountain pins to the Hotel Dolomitenhof. From there you walk on a broad trail closed for cars to the refuge Talschlusshütte. During the last part of this hike you can enjoy the unforgettable view of the Dolomites of Sexten.
At the church of Moso an asphalt road turns left. It soon becomes a forestry road which leads along the gorge of the Sexten River and through dense spruce woods. These woods do not completely hide the Dolomites of Sexten so that tourists can admire them on repeated occasions. After a two hours´ walk one reaches the "Saumahd", as the boundary of the mountain pasture Alpe Nemes is called. Passing by a high wayside cross, the flat forestry road leads you to the refuge Alpe-Nemes-Hütte. On the left, however, a beautiful walk goes up to the refuge and the mountain pasture Klammbachalm.
Starting at the main square you go up the road called Bergweg to the farms of Hössler, there you turn left and follow the track across the fields up to the farm named Ladstätterhof at the edge of the forest. Now you walk through fir woods. Soon you arrive at the Forest Chapel, also called Chapel of Peace. During the First World War this chapel served as church since the parish church had been destroyed by shellfire.
First a forest path which then becomes a track across the mountain pastures with a sharp gradient during the last hour.
You start from the refuge Alpe-Nemes-Hütte walking on a forestry road with easy gradient in eastern direction. Here the winding track leads up to the Kniebergriedl and then becomes a path which brings you on the south-east ridge to the summit. During the last part of this walk you find remains of the First World War. While walking, the Knieberg which has the form of a pyramid is always in your sight and from it you can enjoy a beautiful view of mountains including the Popera Group and the Dolomites of Sexten.
You start at the Kniebergriedl (see previous hike) and walk on a sharp winding road up to the flat Obstanser Saddle with the frontier barracks now in ruins; beautiful view of Lake Obstanser with the refuge Obstanserseehütte.
Here the real hike on the ridge starts. The summits of this ridge are not very high and can thus be scaled easily. A trail follows the ridge on the Austrian side and another one on the Italian side. White boundary stones indicate where the frontier is exactly. After a four hours´ walk starting at the frontier barracks, you reach the refuge Sillianer Hütte from where a rather broad trail leads to the Helm.
During the whole hike one can enjoy a marvellous view of the Pustertal Valley and the Upper Comelico, of the Dolomites and the Central Alps . At different places hikers can find remains of buildings constructed for the positional warfare of the First World War. Those people who do not want to climb on the Helm, take the broad track which leads westwards. After crossing the mountain pastures they come to a path leading from the Helm down to the Negerdorf and they finally get to Sexten. However, there is also the possibility to continue on the walk to the refuge Hahnspielhütte and then to the funicular railway which brings you down to the valley.
In order to avoid a large part of the ascending trail, you take the funicular railway up to the Restaurant Helm and follow the hike on the ridge in the opposite direction.
