Hike to the Schönegg viewpoint and the Tillwiesen

A walk through the woods between the Passo delle Palade and Mt. Macaion leads us to the beauty spot Tillhüttl with flowering meadows and a small lake before we reach the Schönegg viewpoint

The hike starts at the Passo delle Palade (Gampenpass, car park and bus stop): We follow the signpost no. 50 - after 100 m on the forest road, the signpost points to a path that soon ascends steeply and then runs flat along the northern slope. Walking through the green coniferous woods, the path continues towards south-west. On the left side the slope drops steeply in some places, so you should watch your steps. At small clearings and watercourses, nature shows itself in spring in all its colourful splendour: Alpine butterwort, blueberries, cranberries, gentians and numerous other plants are in bloom right now.

We reach the small valley of the Forcella di Mezzo ridge (Mittagsscharte) and shortly afterwards the crossroads at the so-called "Wechsel". Here we turn right onto path no. 58, which takes us to the Tillberg Meadows (Tillwiesen) in a few minutes. This is a small alpine meadow (also if it is called "meadows") with a traditional wooden hut, below which there is a pond on the edge of the forest. A quiet, romantic place far away from busy places!

After a break and enjoying our packed provisions we follow path no. 56, which takes us in about 20 minutes to the Schönegg viewpoint (also marked as "Schöneck" on the signs). From the summit cross you can see the mountain landscape of the Tessa Group, the Sarentino Alps and the Dolomites. For the way back, we follow path no. 50, which after a short stretch along the rocky slope leads us down to the "Wechsel" crossroads - from there we follow the way back to the pass.
