Hike to the mountain pastures of the Riomolino Valley

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. The forest road no. 2 proceeds slightly uphill through the valley, already after 1 kilometre 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 Huberalm, which is also a rest point in summer and the higher located Unterwanger and Oberwanger Huts. The latter is located at 2,030 m asl. at the end of the forest road and at the beginning of the paths to the Cima del Vento (3,041 m asl.), across the Giogo di Riomoline ridge and the Cima Valfredda glacier to the Rif. Vedrette di Ries mountain hut (Rieserfernerhütte).

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