Descent to Sand in Taufers via Michlreis

The Speikboden is more than just a favorite ski area. It is also an ideal hiking area. The mountain got its name from a little flower that grows in the high mountains – Alpine valerian, or “Speik” in German – and that is in fact because this lovely flower is often found in the hiking area.

With the cable cars you can reach the "Speikboden Alm" at 2000 metres of altitude or the Sonnklar mountain at 2400 metres above sea level. Both are starting points for fantastic walks and hikes along well maintained trails. Particularly popular are the sunrise walks - to spot the first sunrays while the valley still lies in darkness is a memorable experience.

Using the cable car Speikboden to reach an altitude of 2000m. Use the forest road "Hochwald" with direction to Luttach for about 1 km. Turn right and use the forest road to Michlreis (restaurant Mittelstation and Schüsslerhof). From here you can use the street to Sand in Taufers and the forest road to the parking place of the cable car Speikboden. Of course this trail can be walked in ascent too.
