Having left our car at the parking space in the centre of San Martino in Passiria, we hike into the direction of the church. Very soon we reach the so-called „Bildhauerhaus“, where a wall plaque remembers the sculptor Anton Ferner (1703 - 1788), who created the altar of the parish church of San Martino.
At the parish church of San Martino in Passiria, we follow trail no. 3. After a short ascent across the meadows we reach the Cadipietra farm (Schildhof Steinhaus), after which the Waalweg path was named. Arrived at the second farm, we hike gently upwards into the forest until we finally reach the beginning of the Waalweg path.
Even though the water channels are not used anymore, there are still some nice little waterfalls, where we refresh ourselves. After about 10 minutes we pass the so-called “Teufelstein“ (literally devil’s stone), a big stone near the trail. Time and time again we enjoy beautiful views of the village of San Martino in Passiria and the peak of Mount Punta Cervina.
After further 40 minutes we arrive at the end of the Waalweg trail and follow the road leading down to the valley, where after some metres a small trail branches off right into the forest. Following trail no. 4 (red-white-red) through meadows and forests we finally arrive at our starting point, San Martino in Passiria.
