Through meadows and a mystical forest you reach the highlight of the hike, the suspension bridge, which is 70m long and spans the Ragn da Ferrera. Then it goes on the Alte Averserstrasse, resp.dem Walserweg back to the starting point in Innerferrera. The hike can be combined with a visit to the Mining Museum and/or the Alpenrose restaurant in the village square of Innerferrera. The history of Ferrera: The municipality of Ferrera was first mentioned in 1204. The Romanesque name (Calantgil) can be derived from the Latin word «caniculus», which means tunnel or shaft. This name also indicates the importance of mining iron, copper, lead and silver. Manganese was mined on Starlera for the last time around 1920. Since then, the extraction of mineral resources has been suspended, the entrances to the mining tunnels and mines can still be seen today. The association Erzminen am Hinterrhein ensures with the mining museum in Innerferrera and with various mining excursions that these history(s) are preserved.
