From Canazei, near the sporting centre and the playground, take the forest dirt road "Cercenà". Walk along the easy and shady track towards the "Soreghès" plain and towards the Col Rodella cable car station in Campitello di Fassa. Go on skirting the stream "Avisio". Flat tracts alternate with short ascents, until you reach the villages of Fontanazzo, Campestrin and Mazzin. The descents to Pera di Fassa starts here, with easy up and downs to "Fraine". Then, leaving the votive chapel on your left, cross the wooden bridge on your right and follow the paved road to the bus stop in "Vac" (Piaza de Fascia). Follow the state road, then pass the roundabout in the town centre of Pozza and, opposite Hotel Monzoni, come back into the cycling lane. Bike across from Camping Rosengarten and continue to the bridge, cross it and descend towards the lower Val di Fassa. Once again the track runs along the stream "Avisio", among fields and woods, but it gives also space to magnificent views of the peaks of Latemar and Catinaccio. Pass carefully along the municipal road that serves the industrial area of Soraga: you will reach the playground and the town centre in few minutes. Take the underpass to cross the street safely and you will come to the uphill stretch that leads to "Palua". Looking back, your gaze falls upon Val di Fassa in all its beauty, framed by the high rocky "crode" (falls) of Rosengarten (Catinaccio), Sassolungo, Pordoi and Monzoni. Continue the descent to Moena. The cycle path finishes near the Minigolf Fantolin and the "Centro di Addestramento Alpino" (Alpine Training Centre). It is necessary to cross the town (along the municipal street or "Prato di Sorte") to reach the Moena plain; this is the departure, in winter, of the legendary Marcialonga. Here, regain the cycle pedestrian path that goes on down to Predazzo and Val di Fiemme.

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.
