The themed "Tru di lersc" hike in San Cassiano offers visitors some exceptional views of the Dolomites.

Along the way, you will have the opportunity to admire some interesting constructions that are in perfect harmony with the landscape, such as the traditional fences and dry stone walls. In some places, notice boards have been erected giving details of the characteristic features of some of the flowers and trees of the region, together with general information about the flora, fauna and geology of the area.

Turn-by-turn directions

The educational walk is reached from the church square in San Cassiano first following trail no. 15 east to the Maso Larjëi farm and then continuing on trail no. 15A to the Rü farm. The Tru di lersc nature trail begins to the left of the Rü farm. The trail winds through larch forests and Alpine meadows on the edge of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park until you reach the Maso Rüdeferia farm, where you can see a restored, working watermill.

Head back on trail no. 15 southwards to return to your starting point in San Cassiano.
