Course description

Route

Start at the Plöckenpass, from where you follow the signs to the Rifugio Marinelli/Marinelli Hütte for approx. 6.5 km. After the Hütte, run along trail no. 143 for approx. 4.5 km via the Hohe Gang/Sentiero Spinotti to the Rifugio Romanin/Romanin Hütte. From the Rifugio Romanin, after about 200 m you reach the Austrian-Italian border at the cross. Immediately after the border you come to the Wolayersee lake and the Wolayersee Hütte. From the Wolayersee Hütte, after approx. 1.25 km, you come to the Valentintörl, run from there to the Untere Valentinalm (approx. 5 km), then to the Maria Theresien Höhe (approx. 1.5 km) and finally on the avalanche gallery back to the Plöckenpass.

Possible variants

After the Rifugio Marinelli you can make a detour to the Hohe Warte/Monte Coglians, at 2,780 m the highest peak in the Carnic Alps. (Afterwards the same route back to the Plöckenpass).
