The trail starts by the Rosskopf mountain station. The path leads on the left to the Kuhalm and Ochsenalm beneath the Telfer Weissen summit (2588m). Here the trails turns around and is going back to the mountain station and further on to the Kastellacke biotope in direction to the Vallming mountain village. Passing these wonderful pastures the trails goes on to Ladurns and you will get a superb view to the Weißwand summit and the Tribulaun summit.
In Ladurns you can take the cable car to return to the valley bottom or you can follow the trail to the Pflersch valley end, where you will find the two alpine huts Allrissalm and Ochsenhütte, before you return to valley.
But one question remains: Where does the trail’s name come from? The Pflersch valley’s rock world is a real Eldorado for geologists. The noble Frenchmen and geologist Deodat de Dolomieu discovered in the trail’s area a new type of rock in the 18th century. This type was further on called Dolomite. Decades later the term was used to denominate the South Tyrolean mountain chain.
