Directions

The Valley Floor Trail can be taken from Uttenheim in two directions. If you'd llike to explore the Tauferer Tal Valley, you should follow the trail to the north, first proceeding along an alluvial fan and then through the shadowy forest until you reach Mühlen in Taufers. When proceeding to the south, the trail rises slightly till the "Neuhaus" Castle. You'll pass by a beautiful outlook point and will be surrounded by seemingly mystical trees. Finally, you will reach Gais and go on to St. Georgen via the "Maurach" Trail.

How to get there
