Description of the way

From the Berghotel (1370 m) right up and then immediately left to the church of Sesto, following the path signed with number 1. Here close to the Goldenes Kreuz Gasthaus and a wooden fountain starts the Consideration way (4d-Bergweg) which takes you to the chapel in the wood. On this way you see lovely farms and coloured meadows. You will notice that the forest around the chapel in the wood is mystical and in the fascism time (between World War I and II) the inhabitants absolved secret German messes, because they were not allowed to speak their mother tongue. We follow the path to arrive at a larger path (number 4), which leads up for a short time until a crossing where we take the road on the right, signed with the number 2 to the Waldruhe (restaurant with a wonderful terrace to eat). Here we follow the road up on the left to the Holzer farm and further on to the restaurant Panorama. Here the path nr. 3 leads down to Moos and way 1 brings you back to the starting point of our excursion.
As an alternative from the Panorama Restaurant you can go on to the Helmhanghütte and go back from there passing the Troyer farms.
