Starting from the lawns hollow of Ponciach this itinerary regularly climbs on a beautiful cobbled road in the shadows of the beech trees to reach after a long way uphill the place named Zise. From there the path smoothly goes on ups and downs into a wood of beech, spruce and white fir where you can easily find tracks of squirrels, foxes and roe deers or hear the tap of the woodpecker and the call of the coal tit.
This trail is appropriate for a short walk, but it is strongly suggested in combination with some Nordic Walking practice.
The itinerary starts near the two little lakes which can be found as soon as you arrive at the hamlet Ponciach (Faver-Altavalle). Climbing path 415A you will reach the place Zise, a crossroads of forest roads with a wooden crucifix in the middle. From there continue toward the lake Lago Santo and following path 415 until it crosses the trail Sentiero Botanico Naturalistico (botanic naturalistic trail) which brings back down to Ponciach.
