Hike from Maranza to the Moser mountain hut

This nice walking tour in May takes us from the Valle d’Altafossa valley up to the Rif. Moser mountain hut at 1,937 m asl.

Starting point of our hike today is the hamlet of Aussereggen in Maranza. We walk towards the Valle d’Altafossa valley (marker no.6). Across the meadows at the edge of the village and into the wood the path proceeds slightly uphill. Near the Valle d’Altafossa parking space we can also walk on the parallel running forest path until the paths merge. After about 5 km the signpost “Moser Hütte” points uphill to the right and few minutes later we have reached our destination.

Unfortunately the visibility is not so good today but the spring flowers on the forest glades, especially the deep blue gentian, compensate for it. We follow the signpost Maranza/Meransen which leads us straight into the village. The trail conditions vary, partly the descent proceeds along rocky forest paths and then along wide paths again. After about 1 hour we reach our starting point again.
