From the hamlet of Selva, close to the rest area, starts the path that slopes up the Marcesina Plateau following mule tracks and ancient paths used by soldiers. The last part of the route becomes more and more plain and crosses a beautiful pine forest. Out of the forest there is "Pria della Messa" and after a 10 minutes walk it is possible to get to Barricata Alpine Hut.
