A panoramic point easy to reach with snowshoes. From the top it is possible to admire the Piné Plateau in its wonderful winter landscape.
The itinerary to the Cròs del Cuc is a route loved by young and old alike for its feasibility and suggestive setting. The summit can be reached in about an hour and a half's walk with snowshoes, following the forest road that starts from the car park near the Baita Alpina hut above the village of Bedollo. The point of arrival is marked by a majestic cross and by the clearing, which affords an excellent view of the glacial mirrors of Lago delle Piazze and Serraia.
We recommend to bring food and hot drinks in your backpack for refreshment once you reach the top.

From the car park after the Baita Alpina restaurant, at the top of the village of Bedollo, proceed along the forest road until you reach the signpost indicating the route to the Cros del Cuc, which reads 'Cros del Cuc - easy path - 45 min'. At the fork, take the forest road to the right uphill. After about 40 minutes, at a last hairpin bend on the right you will again find a fork with a signpost for the viewpoint. Then take the road to the right until reaching the clearing with the large white cross in a few minutes.
From Trento it is possible to reach the town of Bedollo with the public transport, line B402 (Trento - Nogarè - Baselga di Pinè - Montesover).
The starting point can be reached in about 15 minutes from the public transport stop or by reaching the Baita Alpina restaurant independently with your own vehicle.
At the beginning of the forest road there is a dirt car park where you can park your vehicle.
