Mottakopf, 2.176 m | Brand

From Brand Innertal the trail leads on the left side of the Alvier into the valley in the direction of Schattenlagant, passing the Kesselfall to the junction "Gletscherbachbrücke/Mottakopf". Here the path branches off to the right. After a short stretch you cross the Schattenlagant road and arrive at the Gletscherbachbrücke. From here the mountain tour leads in several serpentines up to the Obere Sonnenlagant Alpe. For experienced hikers, the trail continues from here in white-blue-white markings up to the summit of the Mottakopf. At the top, in good weather, you can enjoy a fabulous view of the surrounding mountains of the Rätikon. The trail leads back along the same route or, in the last section at the Kesselfall, you can cross the stream and descend in the direction of the Brand Innertal.

Equipment

Strong footwear, warm clothing, rain and sun protection and hiking poles are recommended. Cell phone for emergencies.
