The departure is located near the car park at the end of the SP218 that connects Brentonico to the town of Polsa. From here, take a comfortable and wide road which, passing by the campsite, continues along the valley towards Monte Vignola. When you reach the Alpini Monument, turn right and, always keeping the center of the ridge, after a first ups and downs, follow the short climb that leads to Colme di Vignola, at the arrival of the Momo ski lift. At this point you can admire the view over the entire lower Adige Valley. From here, always keeping the center of the ridge, head towards the arrival of the Montagnola chairlift and then, skirting the ski slopes, return to the parking area.

Safety information

The route does not present particular safety problems as long as it remains on the beaten track, avoiding, especially in the upper part, to make cuts in the route that can lead to areas at risk of avalanche triggering. In the first part and along the return descent, the path is shared with the skiers, therefore it is sufficient to walk along the edge of the track to always have an easy excursion.
