tour to the peak picco della croce
From Fane Alm (1,741 m), the prettiest Alpine-farm village in South Tyrol, follow trail no. 17 as it climbs gently through the "Schramme" gorge to the Brixner Hütte mountain hut (2,282 m). Here you can often see marmots on the hillsides to the left and right. The trail continues over the Sandjöchl saddle (2,651 m), then, where the trail forks, you continue on trail no. 2A and along the ridge on the difficult mountain trail no. 2 to just before the peak, where trail no. 18 takes you up to the summit cross (3,132 m). The highest peak in our Alpine-pasture region rewards hikers with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. The descent takes you steeply down along trail no. 18 and over the Rauhtaljoch ridge (2,807 m). Below the trail you can see the Wilder See lake, which is a stunning azure blue in fine weather. Due of the altitude and the surrounding mountains, there can be sudden extreme changes in the weather here, which probably gave the lake its name. At Langeben take trail no. 18B, past the little Marblsee lake (2,399 m) and the Aschila Alm Alpine farm (2,255 m) back to where you started at Fane Alm.
