The route allows to enjoy amazing views of the southern sector of the Pale di San Martino, starting from the Primiero villages and moving on to Val Canali, one of the most beautiful Trentino valleys. The trail also reaches Passo Cereda, historical link between the Trentino and Belluno territories. The less experienced are advised to stop here and return to valley. Beyond this point, due to the difference in altitude, the physical effort required and a few rather technical passages, the route is to be considered quite challenging but also rewarding in all respects. From here you can reach Malga Fossetta and then tackle the return to Primiero, going first through the beautiful Stioza and Fedai hamlets to then reach Mezzano and go back to the starting point along the cycling track. Non-signposted trail.

Turn-by-turn directions

Start at the APT (Tourist Office) of Fiera di Primiero, (where you can also park) and from where Tour Nos. 261 and 263 start. The same direction, crossing the river Cismon on the board walk, then left (wpt 02) following the compulsory direction. At the crossroads (wpt 03), first turn left and after a short distance, turn right into Via Lungo Canali and continue on to the end. At the fork (wpt 05), continue straight on, past the Lanterna Verde café-restaurant and stay on the main road which becomes a dirt-track at a certain point. At the end of the road (wpt 07), take the cycling/footpath that leads onto the provincial road S.P. Passo Cereda (wpt 08). Turn right on this road, going back along it as far as the fork for Val Canali where you stay on the left until you get to the Welsperg lake and the café of the same name. then stay on the right alongside the car park to reach the Muse Fedaie route (wpt 11, tour 264). Near Villa Welsperg (wpt 012), turn right and then right again, taking the forestry track uphill with some paved sections. Near the bend, ignore the fork and continue uphill to the left (wpt 014) as far as the next fork (wpt 015), where you turn right and go immediately past a gate. At the end of the forestry track (wpt 016), turn right onto the tarmacked road downhill, then left at the fork for Dalaibi, following the directions for the Agostino trail, continuing on it as far as the bend on the provincial road, S.P. Passo Cereda (wpt 018). Then, go uphill as far as the Pass where you turn right towards Malga Fossetta (wpt 019), continuing on the tarmacked road uphill for a few kilometres, ignoring the two forks you come across, until you reach the Malga. Turn left here downhill along a forestry track, then at the next fork (wpt 023), you continue on a clear track in the field which at a certain point veers to the right, going straight across it and joining up with a dirt-track again (wpt 024). Follow the road to the end, first uphill and then downhill, ignoring the fork (wt 025) where you go straight on. At the end of the road, at Stioza (wpt 026), turn left until you get to Ritasa (wpt 027), then turn right down along a mule track and after a short distance, near a bend, take the path on the left and follow it for two km until it crosses another path (wpt 029). Follow this path uphill, partly on foot, until you reach a forestry track which you follow all the way downhill, ignoring the fork (wpt 030). At the fork, turn left uphill on a tarmacked road and when you are near the “Le Vale” holiday farm accommodation (wpt 032), turn right and continue along the flat ground as far as the fork (wpt 033). Then, downhill to the right and where the gradient tails off before the dirt-track, watch out on the left for a stretch on grass (wpt 034 - push the bikes!!). After about 50m, take the forestry track on the left, staying on the right at the next fork (wpt 035). A short distance on, still on the right, the alternative route starts, a roughly 1.6 km downhill ride on a fun-packed trail. The normal route, on the other hand, joins the tarmacked road which goes back up to Mezzano, in the direction of S. Giovanni (wpt. 036) and which should be ridden downhill as far as Oltra (wpt 037). At the stop sign, turn right, cross the bridge, and then go right again (wpt 038). Continue first on the tarmacked road and then on the dirt-track (wpt 039), towards Madonna del Sass. At the first fork (wpt 040), turn left downhill until you get to the cycling path (wpt 041). Then, turn right, going up a gentle rise as far as the end of the cycling path (wpt 042). Turn left and return to your departure point which is a few hundred metres away.
