The 2,507 metres high Piz da Peres in the Valdaora Dolomites offers very beautiful views of the Plan de Corones and the entire Fanes-Sennes-Braies nature park. Starting at the reservoir lake at Passo Furcia, first we follow the road nr. 3 for some metres until we branch off to the right, following trail no. 12B in the direction of the slope “Pre da Peres“. From there you follow the trail no. 12, which presents some steep rock stairs and is slightly exposed at some sections. Than you across beautiful meadow slopes and finally arrive at the peak cross. From here, we admire the ski mountain Plan de Corones in the North, the Dolomites and Mount Cima Tre Dita in the East and San Vigilio di Marebbe in the South-West.
On the way back you take the trail nr. 3. On many serpentines we go downwards through a scree slope, which can be slippery and difficult to pass after heavy rains or in case of snow. After the scree slope it goes up and down again over a forest trail until the starting point.
