Siusi ring alpe di Tires 2440mt
A technically easy and scenic trail at Alpe di Tires, on the Siusi plateau.
Departure from Valentine's, on the road between Siusi allo sciliar and Campaccio, the arrival of the cable car, where there is also a convenient but expensive parking lot (20?..).
Since I was in sweet company we preferred to avoid the ascent on bitumen and go down to take the cable car, but as an alternative there was also the use the car up to Campaccio(road open from 5 pm to 9 am, then only residents pass). In short, the start is in several places, just get to the alp somehow.
You start on comfortable forest roads, which distinguish the entire Alpe, albeit with immediately some nice ramps that are not too long.
Arrived at the pass @2100mt begins the real climb always on forestry, 400 mt of elevation gain with ramps up to 24% that will take your breath away and the view to the enchanting panorama that surrounds you.
But believe me, the effort (a lot) is worth the view from the hut. You'll see few who venture out with musculars, and if you do you'll be encouraged by the hikers who are climbing with you. And when you are at the hut, as a reward, a serving of kaiserschmarrn will restore your strength.
The descent follows the forest roads to Saltria, but you can also widen the loop further at will off the marked trail.
From Saltria an uphill asphalt road will take you back to Campaccio and then down to where you started.
So in total there is nothing technical, but 2 stars on the difficulty because only with a big heart do you get up there with the muscular.
