The path starts gently on the ridges which are located above the upper station of the Tognola Gondola lift, continues on a first section with slight changes of slope to finally descend towards the Scanaiol Saddle. From the saddle, you may reach meadows of flowers and rhododendron plants which color our fairy-tale path of a wonderful shade of pink. The path then descends very softly into the wood, and then comes back a few hundred meters below the pasture of Malga Scanaiol, where a wonderful view of the San Martino basin and the surrounding mountains opens up in front of the walker. Here, in a location where time seems to have stopped, you will find an enchanting chalet and a cowshed, which are used during summer by some shepherds and theirs cows as an accommodation. The trail then starts again just below the Malga to finally reach the Malga Crel forest road that leads to the Tognola Gondola lift station.
