The itinerary, also suitable for beginners, has a continuous and gradual downward development, but never steep. After the first stretch entirely in the woods, the panorama opens generously over Val di Fiemme near the Salanzada pasture. The only ups and downs that follow, lead to the last stretch of descent to the final surprise: the suggestive waterfall, a jump of about 15 meters, whose microparticles of water suspended in the air give refreshment on hot summer days.

Turn-by-turn directions
