The easy hike through woods and meadows leads to the Häusler Sam hut, which is situated on a meadow surrounded by forest. The trail brings hikers close to the alpine nature of the "Sam Hill". A stop at the Häusler Sam hut is worthwhile to taste one of the many typical dishes of South Tyrolean cuisine, to rest on the lawn or to admire the many animals such as llamas, donkeys, cows or ponies.
