A popular starting point for hikes in the Sciliar area is Umes, another district of the municipality of Fiè allo Sciliar

On the banks of the Rio Sciliar stream lies Umes (Ums) with its farmhouses and the St. Martin Church, which was built in the centre of the hamlet. The village stream flows from the area of the Sesselschwaige Hut in the Sciliar region down into the Valle Isarco valley, and forms the border between Umes and the neighbouring village of Presule, known for its magnificent Presule Castle.

The St. Martin Church is just a plain white building with a square steeple, but with the Sciliar in the background it is the perfect image of a rural Dolomite idyll. From here you can do numerous tours, for example, the Sciliar Alpine Pastures are located on the territory of Umes. These include the Bolzano Refuge called Schlernhaus, which has been enthroned in the mountains for 140 years. Today, this "Castle in the Mountains" is one of the most impressive refuges in the country.

The Umes Circular Path and the path to the Fiè Pond are more leisurely. From this biotope and bathing lake, another path will take you to the idyllic Hofer Hut or to the Tuff Mountain Hut, a refreshment stop and a popular destination for families, featuring numerous animals. Both mountain huts become the starting point of toboggan runs in winter, with pick-up service on request. The sledge run at the Tuff Hut is 2.4 km long, the at the Hofer Hut is 5 km long.
