The varyied Ilswaal channel carries water from springtime to autumn – in these months it is most recommendable to undertake a sunny hike along the Ilswaal trail.
From the sports zone in Silandro, follow hiking trail no. 3 uphill to the Ilswaal channel trail. Here it is possible to hike east to the wild ravine of Schlandraun river where the irrigation channel has its source. Head uphill along switchbacks to Schlandersberg castle (in private ownership), with a spectacular view.
To the west, follow the irrigation channel through chestnut groves and orchards to below S. Egidio church.
