Start from Pozza and walk along "Strada de Meida" that then turns into "Strada Ruf de Ruacia", you will arrive near a bridge that crosses the creek "Ruf de Sèn Nicolò", nearby the restaurant La Soldanella. Just before the bridge, turn right onto a small dirt road, slightly steep at the beginning but then getting steeper and winding. Afterwards the path becomes flat until it joins the Val San Nicolò asphalt road, that will lead you back to town.

Author’s recommendation

Suitable for families with children, Walkable for toddler-carrier/backpack, religious paths.

Refreshment places are to be found along the way.

At the Crocifisso Chapel, near the Restaurant Malga al Crocifisso, the "Via Crucis" of Val San Nicolò reaches its end (leaving from "Meida"). According to professor Luigi Cincelli, the Way of the Cross, dates back to 1835 and has been built thanks to Battista Biasi from Pozza, who donated a couple of florins for it.

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
