Horn circular hike (Ibex Trail)
The hike over the Horn is the classic in the Weisstannental. From Alp Unterlavtina it goes quite steeply uphill. Alpine anemones accompany us in late spring to the Rappenloch, where the first ibexes in Switzerland were released again in 1911. From the Horn we enjoy the view into the valley and to the peaks of the grey horns with the Pizol. The route continues comfortably on the plain of Valtnov to the alp of the same name. Then the alpine path leads us through rock faces back into the valley.
We look out for wildlife such as ibex during the circular hike.
Day hiking backpack (approx. 20 litres) with rain cover, sturdy and comfortable shoes, weather-adapted and durable clothing in the multi-layer principle, telescopic poles if necessary, sun and rain protection, provisions and drinking water, first aid kit, pocket knife, mobile phone, headlamp if necessary, maps.
We start the circular hike in Weisstannen. At the end of the village, follow the signs for Batöni. At Alp Unterlavtina we turn right towards Rappenloch. The trail now leads up to the Rappenloch and on to the Horn viewpoint at 1,841 m above sea level. Now we walk on the plain to Alp Valtnov. Follow the marking according to Vorsiez. From there, the path along the Seez brings us back to Weisstannen.
