ATTENTION: For the hiking season 2019 there is a diversion from Stall to the Goldberghütte due to avalanches and the associated wind throw. The detour route via Steinwand and Sagas to the Goldberghütte is signposted and maintained in the outdooractive tour guide!
A varied stage with great views awaits us far above the central Möll Valley: old footpaths to mountain farms, a historic school path, some newer forest roads and, as the highlight of the stage, the legendary “mine track” from the times of copper mining.
In many respects this stage is like a journey through time: right at the beginning of this stage we walk to the ruins of former Wildegg Castle above Stall. The further ascent to the Sonnberg gives us some idea of what going shopping or to church in the valley once meant for the mountain farmers. Those who assume that the former primary school on the Sonnberg, at an altitude of approx. 1.500 metres, is a relic from long ago are wrong: children were taught here until 2002.
The further route to the Goldberghütte hut could bear the title “alpine farming now and then” – many of the alpine pastures are still used today! However, copper mining in the Innerfragant region came to a standstill long ago. In earlier centuries the ore was transported away from here by horse drawn railway (!), which is why today we can enjoy the completely flat hiking path of the “mine track”.
