It starts from Malga Casarina, an alpine hut which has also a restaurant where you can taste local dishes.
The path goes up throughout the forest till malga Nassere and then till the private parking place of Rifugio Caldenave. This is the starting point of the Zirmi path. Walking along the Caldenave river you can reach Rifugio Caldenave and its uncontamined environmen.
After a pleasant break you can descend into the valley crossing the Campivello bridge and following the path 332 till Tedon: a series of steps will bring you down in a few time.
