The Hirzlsteig (path no. 549) as called
in German is a nice and not too strenuous route under the peaks of the
Rosengarten offering a breath-taking view of the western mountain-chain
of South Tyrol.
This trail starts at the Paolina hut (Rifugio Paolina). Follow
the steep path no. 539 in easterly direction to the Christomannos Monument.
At the monument take path no. 549 first in westerly and then in northerly
direction and head on towards the Fronza hut. On the way back to the
Paolina hut take the same path as before, but after 500m continue on
the slightly descending path no. 552 which leads to starting point.
