Starting from the valley head in San Maddalena/Val Casies Valley (1460m, refreshment point, parking) follow the trail marking no. 49 into the valley to the turner workshop. Once there, you can keep to the forest road (no. 49), or take the easterly footpath, predominately through pastoral landscapes all the way to the Pidigalm with the Messner Hütte (1660m, refreshment point) or the Kradorfer Alm (1704m, refreshment point). Now continue to ascend into the valley to the Oberbergalm (1975m, refreshment point) and over lush alpine meadows and past the headwaters of the Val Casies stream reach the "Forcella di Casies/Gsieser Törl" (2205m).
