Destination

Car park on the street for Lake Santo (see the section "Getting there")

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park turn back for a few meters on the paved road and take the right crossroads that enters in the wood with “Roccolo Sauch 0.45” indications. 

Continue on the forest road in the wood of deciduous tree ingnoring the crossroad for Santo Lake. We suggest a stop to read the descriptions on the information signs about the "Riserva naturale Lagabrun", not far away from our walk. 

Arrived in the locality Pozze take the left crossroads and continue on a pleasant street. Reached "Passo della Croccola" the destination is near and in five minutes you arrive at Roccolo del Sauch. It is worth getting closer to observe the details, helped by some illustrative panels. The excursion continues following the indications for the "Rifugio Sauch", about 10 minutes far from Roccolo del Rauch. 

The way back starts on the main street near the "Giardino delle erbe", a garden with medicinal herbs, and continue towards east. Always on the forest road, after 1,5 Km you get in Pozze again and from there to the starting point following the way there.
