Winter hiking path and sledge run Leckfeldalm

The 7 km long road up to the Leckfeldalm mountain hut proceeds through the woods of the Alta Val Pusteria valley south of Sillian. In winter, the road turns into a gorgeous sledge run

The path starts in the western part of Sillian towards the Wichtelpark adventure park. We cross the Drava Bridge and reach the levelled sledge run which follows the path no. 473 (later 471). We walk uphill to the Gschwendter Kreuz and further to the Leckfeldalm mountain hut. The entire route proceeds through the forest, some clearings open up the view on the Val Pusteria valley and the Defereggen Alps.

The average gradient of 12 % is constantly distributed over the whole route. Almost 850 metres in altitude have to be managed until we reach the sunny meadow where the Leckfeldalm mountain hut is located (2.5 – 3 hours). Here we enjoy a nice rest with a gorgeous view on the valley beneath us and the summits of the Carnic Ridge from the Hochgruben until Füllhorn. But the best is yet to come – an awesome sledge run down into the valley again. Have fun!
