Poit - Cordognè - San Giovanni tour
APT San Martino di Castrozza, Primiero e Vanoi Verified partner Explorers Choice
Choose the route according to your experience and your physical preparation: start with short distances first!
The more, the merrier: leaving alone for a hike can be risky, travel with at least one other person, the experience of a Trekking is better when shared with friends and family!
Program your Trekking in advance, check trails and paths on the maps, have a look online to find out more about your itinerary, ask somebody who already walked the same route.
Prepare your backpack: have a look at our check-list to be sure you already packed all the equipment you may need during the Trekking!
Don’t forget to check the weather forecast.
If you really want to try the experience of a Trekking but you don’t feel ready to do it by your own, just ask one of our Alpine Guides!
Try to estimate an average journey-time of every route, considering the physical condition of each member of the group.
Inform the Hut owner or who is waiting for you at home about your time of arrival and the itinerary.
Keep your eyes open: while you’re walking, check the number of each footpath, but don’t forget to enjoy nature and its magic!
A plan B is always a good idea! Organize an alternative route in case of bad weather or unforeseen event: go back if it’s necessary, play it safe!
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
At the beginning of the trail, you will find an instructional map. Then the route rises for a hundred meters and afterwards you will find a path on the left that goes up into the woods, up to the top of the ridge. From here, through the trees, it is possible to see Noana Valley and the Vette Feltrine Mountain Range. The path keeps rising until it reaches the top of Codognè Mountain (1315 m). You will find some interesting educational panels and some benches.
Continuing on the ridge the route then descends to a depression, where it intersects with another path. Afterwards the trail briefly goes up and then descends again until it arrives to Falasorni (or Falassorni) passage. Here ends the paved street from San Giovanni, and it is an important junction of different paths.
In the passage, you will find a small fountain and the “Christ of Falasorno”, a beautiful wooden crucifix dated back to the end of the 18th Century. Here the view of Mount Pavione is spectacular.
The route descends along a paved street and a shortcut in the woods, and it leads to San Giovanni meadows. After a recommended pause at the small church of San Giovanni, the route continues along the paved street, where you can admire some typical mountain cabins. Then the trail returns to Poit.
From the intersection on the Falasorni passage, it is possible to reach Caltena refuge-restaurant, following the indicated path for approximately 2 Km.
