Themed Hike
Alpine Rose Trail St. Anton

A sea of alpine roses awaits walkers between May and July on this hike of intermediate difficulty. The actual Alpine Rose Trail itself begins at the top of the Rendlbahn cable car at around 2,100 metres above sea level, where visitors can enjoy fabulous views of the Stanzer Tal Valley and the Lechtal Alps. Hikers can either complete the whole walk on foot or take the cable car from St. Anton up to the start of the trail. At the end of the hike is the Rendl Alm hut (1850m), a good place to stop for a meal before the final section back down to St. Anton.

Trail description

This one-day hike starts at the car park of the spa in St. Anton. After passing the bottom station of the Rendlbahn cable car, hikers enter the forest and then cross over the Moosbach river before heading uphill into the Moostal Valley. The Alpine Rose Trail begins next to the top of the Rendlbahn cable car. The first section is uphill, but the rest remains more or less flat at an altitude of around 2,100 metres above sea level overlooking the Stanzer Tal Valley. Hikers pass through a series of avalanche defence barriers and will eventually reach the Rendlalm hut before continuing on all the way back to the starting point in St. Anton.

Alternatively, hikers can take the Rendlbahn cable car onto the mountain (only open Wednesdays and Thursdays in summer). This makes the hike almost 100% flat or downhill and reduces the overall walking time by around two hours.
