The Passer gorge

A dream trail has evolved

Water forms the valley – Along the rock giants and forest sections, the path meanders directly alongside the riverbank, where the Passer river silently runs through wonderful basins and over richly formed blocks and rocks.

An ambitious project provides access to the beauty of nature, which has been exposed and formed by the Passer river. It has been notched into the rock over many years and formed impressive rock formations and swirls. In the course of the environmental compensation measures during the construction of the Enerpass power station, the plan to create a path from St. Leonhard/S. Leonardo to Moos/Moso emerged in 2008. The path is a part of the irrigation channel trails, which are created all around Moos and demonstrate how water and ice have formed the valley. Seats and information points are placed along the path, only a few, so as to not take priority over nature, but to direct focus on its beauty. Many were involved in the implementation to successfully bring to a close something that seemed hopeless in the beginning.
