We start our hiking tour in the centre of Verdines, a little village above the entrance of the Val Passiria not far from Scena, heading towards Mount Scena until we reach a crossroads. From here, the trail leads gently downwards.
We continue our tour on a beautiful trail leading across the forest and later on a road with little traffic, which also leads to the valley station of the Taser cable car. Following the signposts, we finally reach the Waalweg path.
Time and time again, at some sections the dense deciduous forest allows us to enjoy the beautiful surrounding panorama and a great view of the village of San Giorgio. Finally, the last section of the trail leads us into the Val di Nova at the end of Mount Scena. At the valley station of the Monte Ivigna cable car we take trail no. 15 and hike back to Scena. However, there is also the possibility to take the bus to reach the starting point of our hiking tour.
Please note: The Scena Waalweg path is an easy and well maintained hiking trail. Except for icy winter days, it is accessible the whole year round.
Please note: When you plan to do this hiking tour, please inform yourselves on the conditions of the trails!
