Only recently, on June 8, 2006, the so called “geologists’ path” has been inaugurated. Since then it has delighted young and old, small and tall hikers from all over.
Along this natural and historical walk there are about 10 information panels, revealing information - unfortunately only in Italian and German - on the various stone layers of the surroundings. The path winds along the “Frötscher” river, which in the course of the years has uncovered various layers.
There you go with a detailed description of the hike:
The path starts at Bagni di Razzes at 1,212 metres asl. From this point it takes you along the Frötscher stream. When following path no. 1 and no. 1/a you will finally get to Malga Prossliner at 1,740 m.
Now you already start your way back again. Walk towards the foot of the Sciliar mountain and head through a belt of thick forest back to Bagni di Razzes.
The hike isn’t too difficult, features however an estimated hiking time of 5 hours!
