The Blaser is located in the Gschnitz valley, one of the Brenner side valleys.
You can take the train to Steinach and go on with well-timed bus to Trins Gemeindeamt, instead of going on the mostly very busy road up to the Brenner by car. From the bus stop you follow the street for around 100 m before turning to the right (east) where the road becomes smaller and steep while passing the last houses.
At the car park the path no.
30 leads you into the wood. After a few minutes of walking you can take a small detour of 10 minutes rightwards to the unique viewpoint called “Adlerblick”.
Continuing through the forest the path crosses several clearings and crosses the forest road for two times.
A few meters after having passed a small cabin you’ll reach the tree line.
From now on you cross the beautiful alpine meadows with its picturesque flowers and some hay barns until you encounter the forest road again next to a barn and a bench.
After a short sequence on the road the routes switches onto the path no.13 that directs you to the Blaser hut.
With the traditionally cultivated mountain pastures and the self-made cheese, this hut provides insights into the previous culture of Tyrollean mountain farmers. You will reach the hut at 2176 m where you will be rewarded with a great scenery, headed by the stunning sight of the rocky Serles summit.
The hospitable Blaser hut also provides the opportunity to stay overnight or only take a short brake and continue to the nearby summit plateau of the Blaser. For the way down, follow the ascension pathway back into the valley.
