Winter hiking path and sledge run Moarhof

This family walk offers also a toboggan run in the low mountain range of the Val Pusteria valley above Corti and Chienes.

Even if the weather is not too good down in the valley today, we make a trip to the low mountains of the Val Pusteria valley. We go to Chienes (Kiens) in the Val Pusteria valley, where we take the road to Issengo (Issing). This is where we turn left to Corti (Hofern), after the Lärchenhof farm we take the narrow mountain road until we reach the Gelenke parking space (1,591 m a.s.l.).

From this point we proceed on foot, following the signpost "Moarhofalm", marked 65 or "Murmeltierweg" (literally: Marmots' Trail). There is also a shorter trail across the forest, signposted M 65. Across the ploughed and snow-covered forested path, we overcome the needle forest. After four hairpin bands, the needle forest becomes less dense and provides a view of the Braies and Sesto Dolomites.

Today, however, the view is not too good, but also the fog is quite fascinating. Almost flat along the slope, we reach the Moarhof Mountain Hut (Moarhofalm) at 1,833 m a.s.l., which is open until late winter, and also in summer months. After a well-deserved lunch, we decide to do the return on the sledge. By the way, you can rent toboggans also at the mountain hut.
