The trekking starts out from the San Bortolo chapel for those who have the permit, whereas for the others the route is a bit longer (approximately 1 hour) and starts at the parking lot by the Ponte delle Rudole bridge.
From the fields of Primalunetta, passing through Malga Primalunetta an ancient way is followed that has been fixed by volunteers and retired people of Spera, which leads to path L34 and to Monte Cenone and afterwards to Croz of Primalunetta. In the valley that represented the stronghold of Monrosa battailon, various paths reinforced with stones, emergency admission are found that have been renovated. From this outpost, it is possible to imagine which type of view the italian soldiers had, when controlling a good part of the Valsugana and Lagorai. The way back is done going down to the lakes of Buse di Pio, and then following the path fixed by the volunteers up to San Bortolo church.
