- INTEREST: naturalistic
From the Vason pass, you continue along the SP85 towards Viote, until the Casa Cantoniera, the last building in the town. You follow the wide pavement with a pleasant panoramic walk leading to the subway below the skiing slope, and then downhill to Viote. Here, you will find trail SAT 607, which goes over the road bridge. You follow it north-east towards Vason. Following the directions, you cross meadows until you reach a small wooden altar, under an old larch tree. Continuing, you reach the Rocce Rosse skiing slope. After crossing it, in La Cuna, you go underneath the ski lift, where the road turns into a mule track. On the way down the hill you come to a fork, where path SAT 607 heads off to the left. You turn right, on a slight uphill, along the Sentiero Cercenari in the Vason direction. The path continues uphill along a terrain characterised by large sloped slabs of rock, which indicate the location where the Lavé landslide detached, as mentioned in route 15. When you come to another fork, you turn right, in the Vason direction, on a stepped mule track, which soon leads to the provincial road, and to the piazza of the Casa Cantoniera. It is also possible to start and end this route from the Rocce Rosse and Viote parking areas.
Don't miss: the Alpine Botanical Gardens, the Viote Peat Bog Biotope, the Terrazza delle Stelle Observatory, the Larch tree, the view.
