Located within the Samnaun Alps, the road to the summit is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail.

Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The steep is over than 30%. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. It’s one of the highest roads of the country. The summit is also known as Paliner Kopf.
