On the left of the old San Floriano’s church climb "Strèda dò Ruf de Antermont" and cross the second bridge over the stream bearing the same name. Turn left almost immediately. The path becomes immediately steep, alternating difficult slopes with even sections. You will reach the very small clearing known as "Pian Pozata", characterized by a big rock and equipped with tables and benches to take a rest. After a few dozen metres, you will end up onto the "Pian Pozata" forest road. The slope continues: it is at first slight but then, as you walk along the rocky sides going on for a long section, it becomes steeper. Near the stream, the road turns into a small path again, as it was at the beginning. Cross the stream (it is quite easy to cross) and follow it down to the valley. Come out of the wood above the wide grassland area named "Soracrepa", one of the most ancient human settlements in Val di Fassa. Cross the "Ruf de Soracrepa" again and go down along the steep descent (walking poles recommended) towards the village of "Gries", formerly an independent centre in Fassa and today a part of the Municipality of Canazei. Pass by the church dedicated to the "Madonna della Neve". The eastern facade of the church is decorated with a large fresco of Saint Christopher. From here you continue on the left toward the parish church, take the stairs on the right and get back to the centre of the town by following the main road.

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
