Hike in the Braies Valley to the Malga Brusada

Pleasant hike from Ferrara in Braies di Fuori to the Brusada Mountain Hut, situated at 1,900 m a.s.l. high above Valdaora.

The meadows of the Malga Brusada mountain hut are located at the slope between Valdaora and Braies. Our hike starts at the church of Ferrara (Schmieden) in the beautiful Valle di Braies valley, from where we follow path no. 2 over the Rio Braies brook and uphill to the edge of the forest.

The asphalt road snakes its way across the meadows before it turns into a gravelled forest path. We follow the signpost no. 35A uphill trough the coniferous forest. Near the highest point at 1,900 m a.s.l. the forest road becomes a narrow meadow path. At the fence on the boundary of the municipality of Valdaora (Olang) we enter the area of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park.

Finally a gravel path leads us slightly downhill towards the Brusada Mountain Hut (Brunstalm). This lovely rest point invites to stop and offers delicious South Tyrolean delicacies. Afterwards we follow the same trail back down into the valley again.
