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.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Miola di Piné, head for the village of Faida. After the church, head south down a secondary tarmac road. Carry on across a wood and over a stone bridge. One hundred metres beyond the bridge, turn right ('Ippovia – Laghestel'). Carry on downhill until you reach a cluster of farms (Maso Sassi Grandi). From there, we recommend you make a detour to take in the Rio Negro waterfalls (take the path on the right). Carry on along the gently climbing road first to the hamlet of Erla, then to Montagnaga. After going through an underpass (under a provincial road), you reach the pilgrimage site of the Madonna di Piné. Carry on towards the site of the apparition ('conca della Comparsa'). Turn right in the direction of Puell. In the vicinity of a dump of inert waste, bear right along a dirt road. At the hamlet of Bernardi, turn left immediately behind the church. After leaving the hamlet, carry on first along a tarmac road, then on a path between drystone walls (between the Tess and Palustel localities). Follow the dirt road around the nature reserve, then leave the biotope area and take the communal road, which, after heading east for 100 m, crosses the provincial road. From there, follow tarmac roads (marked as cycling paths) across the countryside until you get back to the starting place.
