- Alta Badia
Itinerary: The Sas dla Crusc/Sasso di Santa Croce mountain is probably one of the most beautiful in the Dolomites. The little church at the feet of the mighty massif is one of the most popular subjects in photographs of the Dolomites. The run starts in Badia, at the parking area of the chairlift Santa Croce and climbs up on hiking trail no. 7. The route goes beneath the Santa Croce and La Crusc chairlifts, over gently rolling meadows and through sparse woodland. As you run, the mighty Sasso di Santa Croce is always in front of you. The first part of the climb is on asphalt (about 1.5 km) and a well-surfaced gravel track.
For the return to Badia you can choose various alternative routes or you can descend with the chairlifts La Crusc and Santa Croce.
