Itinerary

Pass the church on the way to Oderen Pass and take the first road on the right and follow it for about 300 m, then turn right again. There, on your left, you will see the first cross. Cross the bridge and then turn left on to the path, you will pass the foot of the ski jump. Cross another small bridge and turn right towards the forest. At the entrance to the forest, leave the path briefly and visit a waterfall about 100 m away, then return to the path that leads through the forest (caution, the stones are sometimes slippery depending on the season and the weather conditions) to the Hermitage Chapel. When you arrive at the chapel, at the foot of the ski resort, you will have a beautiful panoramic view over the village and the surrounding mountains. The more athletic will be able to climb up to the top of the ski slopes along the many trails of varying levels of difficulty. Return to the starting point along the same route.
