Hike to the Valle di Riomolino mountain pastures

A comfortable hike to the Bagni di Riomoline and the alpine pastures at the head of the valley in the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park.

Starting point of this valley hike is the parking space at the entrance of the Valle di Riomolino valley (Mühlbachtal) above Gais, about 2 km from the small mountain village of Riomolino (Mühlbach). The forest road no. 2 proceeds slightly uphill through the valley, already after 1 km we pass the Bagni di Riomoline bath (Mühlbacher Badl). Here the healing spring, a little chapel and the eponymous mountain tavern are located.

Further up in the valley we pass some mountain huts, among them the Huber Mountain Hut (Huberalm), which is also a rest point in summer and the higher located Unterwanger and Oberwanger Mountain Huts. The latter is located at 2,030 m a.s.l. at the end of the forest road and at the beginning of the paths to Mt. Cima del Vento (3,041 m a.s.l.), across the Giogo di Riomoline ridge and the Cima Valfredda glacier to the Vedrette di Ries Mountain Hut (Rieserfernerhütte).

Such demanding hiking tours are not our aim today and after a break we return to the parking space again. Those who make this walk in autumn, can enjoy the beautiful colours of the larches.
