Post Trail

On the ancient postmen's traces

As its name suggests, the Post Trail retraces the ancient route used by the postmen to deliver mail twice a week from Laion to Gardena Valley.

From the trail one can marvel at the splendid view of the Sella and the Sassolungo/Langkofel Mountains, inhaling the fragrance of the pines while hiking through forests, across flowering meadows and down narrow mountain paths. The trail passes through the villages of Ceves/Tschöfas, Tanurza/Tanirz and San Pietro in Valle/St. Peter, before reaching Ortisei/St. Ulrich.

From here you continue on the permanent IVV route, taking the geared railway to Rasciesa/Raschötz and then Trail no. 35 back to Laion.
Once there, don’t miss the climb to the Rasciesa Cross at 2,281m from where you can enjoy a truly breath-taking 360° view and pay a visit to the Chapel of the Holy Cross at Rasciesa di Fuori/Außerraschötz.
