MTB tour to the Malga Simile Mahd

The Malga Simile-Mahd mountain hut is situated at about 2,000 m a.s.l. above the idyllic Val di Senghes valley. We reach it by mountain bike via a forest road, starting from Campo di Trens.

The railway station of Campo di Trens near Vipiteno is our starting point for this mountain bike tour. We cycle towards the village centre - immediately after crossing the Brennero state road, the road to Valgenauna and Flanes di Sotto branches off to the right. The route leads slightly uphill past the Valentine's Church of Valgenauna and then up to Flanes di Sotto. There, the asphalt road ends and we continue on a forest path towards the Val di Senghes valley.

Here the route climbs noticeably uphill through the valley gorge. Past the "old Flaner saw" and we reach the Senghes alpine pastures. At the upper end of the valley, where horses and cows graze, the alpine road makes a loop and we start the last crisp climb up to our destination. The Simile Mahd Alm is located on the sunny side below the sloping peaks of Cima di Senges, Ochsenkopf and Finsterstein. A cool drink and a hearty meal are exactly what we need now. By the way, the Fundres High Route also leads past the mountain hut, and nearby hiking destinations are the Lake Selvaggio and Mt. Picco della Croce. The descent into the valley is along the same route.
