Winter walk in Tires

From San Cipriano a path takes to the beautiful Wuhnleger Pond, the most famous viewpoint on Mt. Catinaccio.

Our winter walk starts at the late Romanesque St. Cyprian Chapel, where the road to Bagni di Lavina Bianca branches off. We follow the little road upwards, past the taverns Weisslahnbad and Pine. Afterwards there is another section up through the forest, before the ploughed road ends and we follow the signpost no. 6, where the paths bifurcate. Across snow-covered meadows, then through the forest, we reach the farms above Tires, called Trompedeller, Veralten and Pattiss. This is where the path no. 48 branches off.

The snow-capped path climbs and takes across the forest, until we reach the St. Sebastian Chapel, idyllically located in a snow-covered clearing. Then we proceed the way up until we reach a road junction, where we follow the Wuhnleger path. It takes us to the Wuhnleger Pond, in the waters of which in summer months the peaks of the Catinaccio Group are reflected. For this reason it is a popular photo motif. However, also the frozen version has its particular attraction.

We proceed on the path towards Mt. Catinaccio, soon the path goes down to Bagni di Lavina Bianca and back to San Cipriano, where our winter walk ends.
