Tour of the Naturnser Alm

Naturns (554 mt) - Naturnser Alm (1.922 mt) - Vigiljoch (1.743 mt) - Aschbach (1.326 mt) - Töll (508 mt) - Naturns

Leaving the centre of Naturns behind, take the Bahnhofstraße and cycle over the bridge to the Sportplatz, the village Sports Field. The path then leads steeply upwards towards the Naturnser Nörderberg, passing a number of mountain farmhouses on its way, and along a forestry road, the Forststraße, to the Kreuzbrünnl car-park. Another forestry road, which is closed to cars, starts from here and leads up to the Naturnser Alm. After a well-deserved rest, take path. no. 9a which starts from just behind the Alm to the right. Please note: path no. 30 is not a particularly attractive route!
After a short uphill climb, an old Karrenweg an old cart-path meanders along the high plateau to meet up with path no. 9 which is quite steep in places and leads up to Vigljoch, where the little church of St. Vigilius is well-worth a visit! Path no. 28, followed by a forestry road, will take you downhill to Aschbach, cycle on past the little chapel of Maria im Schnee, Mary in the Snow, and then on down the tar-surfaced Teerstraße to Töll, a little village on the main road. Cross the bridge and cycle along the left bank of the river Etsch through Rabland and Plaus to get back to Naturns.
