The route starts from the village of Ville, a panoramic hamlet overlooking the verdant basin of the municipality of Giovo, characteristic for the vineyards terraces. From the center of the village, where the ruins of Castello della Rosa are still visible, now private property, take the way up in the woods that on the plateau above the town and from there follow the road in direction  Monte Corona, passing by the apple orchards. After a while you will see on the left the the direction for Dos Paion on a forest road.

The route turns around the mountain and passes through a dense forest of beech, pine and fir, until it meets the crossroads where the path that leads to the panoramic point in "Dos Paion" starts. On the peak are to be found a comfortable pitch with table and benches, perfect for refreshment, the view of the lower Cembra Valley and the mountain ranges of eastern Trentino, and the large metal cross placed at the access of the summit. It is a medium difficulty hike, with some ups and downs. The path becomes slightly steep in the final strech to the top.
