From Fer de Caval, the route follows the paved road East and then South, where it becomes a gravel road. It climbs up in the woods, around a hairpin bend and a few other turns, and reaches Val Granda, where the road becomes flat. A turn-off to the left, marked by tables SAT 627, suggests a further climb, this time following a mule trail. You soon reach a restored Austro-Hungarian work, the "Fuciliera", and then continue, with a few bends, towards the Eastern edge of the Sorasas, which provides an aerial view of Valle dell'Adige north of Trento. The mule track reaches a series of caves, and an observation point called "Pontesel" (balcony), from which the view embraces the six hundred metres that separate it from the bottom of the valley. Two hairpin bends now lead to the northern section of the mountain, far from the edge of the cliff, thus making it possible to descend to other defensive stations in Spazadomeneghe. After retracing your steps, you go down some more to an ample clearing, where a dirt road starts - full of bends - leading back to the starting point. For those who wish to reach Fer de Caval on foot, it is possible to get off at the bus stops in Cadine or Soraval, as shown on the map. There is also an alternative - as indicated by the pink trail - briefly described in the chapter entitled "Other routes on Monte Bondone". From the piazza in Cadine, it is possible to walk down to the Bus de Vela fort (cross-road gate), which is open for visits.
