The hike from Riscone to Kronplatz/Plan de Corones is demanding and recommended for those who are well-trained.
948 m / 2274 m
From the car parking at the valley station we head towards the "Steak House Hardimitzn" (restaurant) and continue up to the first trail (n. 6 - path AVS). The trail is well marked, through the woods, partly on a dirt road, partly on a path, until it crosses a forest road just before the mid-station. Turn right and continue for 200 meters along the road until you come to a turn. The AVS trail continues left through the woods and takes to Seewiese (small lake). Cross it and go straight through the sparse forest until you reach the forest road. Cross it and go up into the woods on the other side going to the left and reaching an open space. Continue along the path, pass under the LUMEN Museum and reach the top of Plan de Corones.
