Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point of the hike is the valley station of the Resciesa cable car. On the left side of the station you follow the Via Raschötz until you reach the junction Solaria. There you turn left and follow trail nr.10, which leads you in a longer ascent through the Rasciesa forest and then left to the Resciesa hut (2170 m, refreshment stop). The trail continues to the Außerraschötz summit (2281 m, summit cross) and to the Heilig Kreuz chapel (2198 m).
