Leusorgweg: 6 km, approx. 2 - 3 hours, 290 metres altitude difference
This trail leads along the rebuilt farms to the avalanche memorial at the cemetery. In 1954, the biggest avalanche catastrophe in the valley occurred. Blons was severely affected by the avalanches. A lot has happened in the village in recent years. In addition to many new houses with great architecture - starting with the community centre and the avalanche documentation centre inside - you will learn how the village has developed since the 1954 disaster. You walk along the road to Oberblons. In Oberblons you first pass the Eschtobel, cross a large meadow and then arrive at the photovoltaic plant. The path now leads through the plant and leads into a forest path. Follow this downhill until you reach a road again. From there, take the road back to Blons. Two information boards along the path remind you of the avalanche catastrophe of that time.
