Turn-by-turn directions

Just a few meters north from the bus stop you find the signpost for trail nr. 6 (Pescol), which takes you along the provincial road to the locality of Puntac. On tarmac road, walk through woods and meadows to the Jusciara farm, where you take a steep track on the left to reach the houses of Pescol (1 h).
Now follow track nr. 6A to the north, staying on the left direction Aiarëi. The trail crosses steep meadows before coming to the isolated farm of Col Cöce. Shortly after, enter and cross the wood until you come to a fence. Cross the fence and, sometimes on the flat, sometimes slightly downhill, cross the meadows until reaching a junction north of the Grones farm (2 h 10 min.). Carry on to the right and follow sign nr. 8 southward, passing the Grones farm and continuing towards Badia. The trail descends gently and comes
to the Costa farm. From here, you reach the provincial road near a powerhouse and in a few minutes, you return to the starting point in Badia.
