Directions
The trail starts from Plata/Platten above Falzes/Pfalzen. From the car park, follow the signs 66 A and the indication "Sambock", partly on trails and forest path, sometimes quite steep, sometimes slightly ascending. It continues through the forest and passes a hunters' hut, afterwards up on mountain pastures to the flat summit "Auf den Platten" (2175 m). Continuing northward on the wide grassy ridge, you achieve the summit. Descent in 2 hours on the same way described for ascent. For experts: following the marking points on the north ridge, some places are exposed (at one exposed point is a wire cable), you get to a dip (2365 m); then turn left towards the small lakes of Plata, the hut "Plattner Alm" and then down to the starting point.
How to get there
By car on the Brenner motorway A 22, exit Brixen / Pustertal Valley, the main road of Pustertal Valley SS49 to Kiens, then turn left on E66, Issing, Pfalzen (25 km) or the SS49 from Lienz / East Tyrol to Bruneck; exit Bruneck East, at the roundabout the 2nd exit, at the next roundabout again the 2nd exit and at the last roundabout the first exit to Pfalzen E66 and from Pfalzen to Plata (1571m).
