Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park in the centre of La Val, you climb up to the Ranch da André hut (1863 m). On path no. 15A, which passes through the forest and along the meadows at the foot of Sasso Croce, you will reach the homonymous hut, arrival point and highest point of the hike. At the hut we recommend a short stop to refresh yourself and to visit the small church of Santa Croce while admiring the surrounding panorama.

The return journey is along the same route as the outward one.
