Hike to the Rifugio Lachwiesen and the Innicher Eck

This easy mountain hike makes you discover the forests and meadows at the Dosso above Dobbiaco and San Candido.

Starting at the parish church of Dobbiaco (Toblach) we follow the Via Ehrenberg road. At the junction with the Via San Silvestro road we find the marker no. 1A towards Haselsberg, shortly afterwards the path branches off from the asphalt road and leads through the forest up the slope. A section across meadows follows, we walk past the farms of Haselsberg.

Then we continue again through the dense coniferous forest. At a junction we find the signpost "Lachwiesen-Hütte" and follow it, it leads to a small hill where the Lachwiese Biotope is located, directly beneath the 1,957 m high Dosso (Scheibeneck). 90 minutes we are now on our way and reach the Lachwiesen Mountain Hut (Lachwiesen-Hütte) at 1,690 m a.s.l. As we would like to extend our hike a little, we follow the forest road which later reunites with path no. 1A and leads to the Innicher Eck. This is a crossing into the Valle San Silvestro valley, which opens the view on the border ridge - from Mt. Corno di Fana to Mt. Cornetto di Confine and Mt. Pausa Alta.

From here - if you have arranged enough time - you could continue hiking to the St. Sylvester Chapel and the eponymous San Silvestro Mountain Hut (Silvesteralm). As we had planned a comfortable tour today, we return to the Lachwiesen Mountain Hut (rest point) and after an extensive break we descend again to Dobbiaco.
