Individual tour offside the much frequented routs, like a promenade, easly to go and suitable for everyone. The trail is leading on a new course from Piani Carnalez directly to Maso Plaz and offers nice fotomotivs. In the heat of the summer this trail is offering pleasant refreshing and in autumn a charming game of colours. From time to time the wood is clearing off and offering a window full of special view over the upper Val di Non. On the way you are passing the legendary „Dunes of Maso Plaz“ with it´s bizarre forms and special plants. On half way is situated a rest area with bench and table.
Im Mittelteil der Route befindet sich die Abzweigung zu den "Dünen von Maso Plaz". Ein kleiner Abstecher dahin (ca 20 Min Aufstieg) lohnt sich auf jeden Fall
Da es sich auch um einen Radweg handelt, ist der Trakt für den Verkehr gesperrt, es ist jedoch auf Mountainbiker zu achten.

The trail start is situated above the village of Carnalez in a place called „Piani di Carnalez“ on the road from Brez to Lauregno. It is an ideal starting point thanks to a large parking area where can also turn a bus. We take the road called „Rankipino“ and hike in direction Maso Plaz. The trail is 2 meters wide and leads in slight blends through the forest. It proceed without many differences in altitude until the middle section, where are some stairways to conquer. The rest of the trail is proceeding comfortable and relaxing. The last 10 minutes are leading on a forest road lightely downward directly to the destination. This tour is viable all over the year, in winter with much snow by snowshoes
