At an elevation of 2,581 m, the Ifinger is Scena/Schenna’s local mountain. The peak offers a fantastic panorama. Plenty of mountain experience, sure-footedness, a good head for heights, and via ferrata equipment are required as the ascent to the peak includes a via ferrata.
Starting from the mountain station at Merano 2000, hiking trail no. 3 passes the Waidmannalm Mountain Hut and continues up to the little St. Oswald Church (2,200 m). Continue via the Oswald gap to the Kuhleitenhütte Mountain Hut at 2,363 m. Reach the little Ifinger peak (2,552 m) by following trail no. 19. Fantastic views can already be enjoyed at this point where the via ferrata to the Großer Ifinger peak begins. These rocky passages are only for sure-footed hikers with a good head for heights. Return by the same route.
