Safety guidelines

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Starting point
Santo Lake
Directions

Just before the Lago Santo Hut, take the path signposted “Roccolo Sauch”. Continue down the path to the junction with the forest road. Turn right and continue on the latter. We suggest a stop to read the descriptions on the information board about the "Riserva naturale Lagabrun", which is not far from our walk. 

At Pozze, choose the left-hand fork and continue on the pleasant road. Once you reach "Passo della Croccola", your destination is near and in five minutes you will reach Roccolo del Sauch. It is worth getting closer to observe the details, aided by the well-made illustrative panels. 

The way back starts on the main street near the "Giardino delle erbe", a garden with medicinal herbs, and continue towards east. Following the forest road, after 1,5 Km you return to the hamlet of Pozze and from there to the starting point, following the outward route. 

public transportation
