Coming from the western edge of Selva (Wolkenstein) in Val Gardena (Gröden) at 1,537 metres, park at the tourist parking area above the hamlet of Daunëi (1,675 m). From there, follow trail markings (No. 3), first briefly along the farm access road and then on a footpath through woods and meadows, north up to the Juac-Hütte mountain hut and then to the Juac alpine farm (1,903 m; serves food). From there, follow Trail No. 17 east: you’ll start out through woods again and then cross rocky steep terrain, partially up steps, and switchback up to the Forcella San Silvestro (Silvesterscharte) wind gap (2,280 m). Beyond, it’s not far down to a road fork, where you turn left (still following Trail No. 17). First you cross flat across a hillside and then it’s a moderately steep climb to up to the Malga Stevia (Steviahütte) mountain hut (2,312 m; serves food); 2 hours from the starting point. For the descent, either take the route of ascent (a good 1.5 hours) or the following route, which is slightly shorter: starting from the hut, go back to the road fork below the wind gap previously mentioned (Forcella San Silvestro). From there, follow signs that say ""Express"" to the left, climbing uphill, out to the grassy Steviola Ridge, along the west side on a rocky hillside and then over a lot of steps (Trail No. 17A) down to a forest, which you pass through in order to get back down to the starting point; about 1.5 hours from the hut.
