Path that crosses the Piné Plateau and the Municipality of Segonzano, offering the pilgrim numerous opportunities for prayer and beauty: from fractional churches to votive shrines there is no shortage of places for spiritual refreshment in a unique naturalistic context characterized by the blue of the lakes but also from the dark green of the dense pine forests and from meadows and pastures.
The itinerary develops on a mixed track alternating forest roads with comfortable asphalted paths with some stretches on the path. In the inhabited centers and along the perimeter of the lakes there are bars and restaurants where you can refresh yourself.
Degree of difficulty according to the common symbology: EE route (on forest roads and paths)

Start from the center of Montagnaga and cross the village upwards towards the Sanctuary of the Redentore (at the crossroads take via Targa). Go down to the base of the hill of the Sanctuary, take via Puel and go through the countryside, always following the signs for Puel. At the beginning of the dirt road that appears near the wood, take the direction to Laghestel and go straight through the green until you reach the biotope of the same name. Go around the stretch of water and come out of the woods to reach Ferrari. The itinerary continues through the hamlet of Tressilla with its Belvedere and the old part of Baselga di Piné with the ancient parish church dedicated to S. Maria Assunta and continues along the left bank of Lake Serraia up to Bedollo following the Giro dei Plateau lakes.
From Bedollo starts the European path E5 that cuts the hump of Segonzano and leads up to the hamlet of Stedro. From there continue through the hamlet of Sabion along the slightly uphill countryside. When you reach Dos Venticcia, continue following the Via Crucis until you reach the Sanctuary of the Madonna dell'Aiuto.
From the sanctuary take the forest road that leads through the woods to Valcava passing through the locality of Valon and then descend to the town of Brusago.
The return will take place along the cycle and pedestrian path of the lakes and the right side of the Piazze and Serraia lakes. Once in Lido it is advisable to detour through the countryside where the typical small fruits of the place are grown in the greenhouses and pass through the town of Miola with a stop at the Church of San Rocco.
The return route will take place along the cycle / pedestrian path that from Ferrari plunges into the woods and ends the itinerary in Montagnaga di Piné.
