The ninth stage of the Dolomites World Heritage Geotrail II leads up the Rienztal valley to the Dreizinnenhütte hut in the shadow of the Three Peaks. This stage takes in a precise moment in the geological history of the Dolomites, namely when, 235 million years ago, after a period of intense volcanic activity, new reefs of algae, sponges and corals took root on the cores of the previous tropical atolls.
