Hike to the Juac and Stevia mountain huts

The tour with an amazing view takes from Mt Col Raiser to the Juac and Stevia huts, and back via the Firenze mountain hut.

We start at Santa Cristina and take the Col Raiser cable car till the mountain station. There we have to take the path n° 4 which leads us to the Gamsblut mountain hut, in front of us the valley and the impressive Mt Sassolungo. After crossing a forest trail we walk up to Juac mountain hut (1,903 m a.s.l.), which is placed on a sunny hill. From here the real rise starts, first through the woods and later on in serpentines till the tree limit. Here you get rewarded with an amazing view to the Val Gardena with Santa Cristina and Ortsei till Alpe di Siusi with the Sciliar Massif.

Now steps are leading you to the Forcella di San Silvestro saddle, which is separating Mt Stevia from the Steviola pinnacle, also part of the Stevia Massif. We are following the path under the south wall, first downhill and further up to Stevia mountain hut (2,312 m), which is surrounded by green meadows. The view is wonderful and amazing, you can see the Gardenaccia high plateau, Vallunga, the Cir Peaks, the Sella Group with Passo Sella and the Sassolungo Group.

The path no. 17 is leading us further up to the Forcella de La Piza saddle, which is placed under the top of Mt Stevia (2,556 m). Always having Mt Seceda and the Odle Group in front of us, we are walking downhill the path n° 17B to the Firenze mountain hut (2,037 m). From there Mt Col Raiser isn't far anymore.
