Starting from the parish church, go along Strada Dolomites up to the top of the slope, turn left onto the little white road running across a beautiful mountainside covered with meadows dotted with trees here and there. Go into the wood and, after the viewpoint, you find a barrier. Cross it and go downhill to the left along the edge of the meadows. The gradient decreases quickly. You will then come out to find an easy little path, which after a few minutes walk leads to the houses of the "Palua" hamlet. Walk along the street bearing the same name and go back to the centre of Soraga.

Book recommendation by the author

Winter walks - Azienda per il turismo della Val di Fassa

Equipment

Wear adequate clothing, footwear and equipment (boots, shoe spikes and poles) suitable for the length and grade of difficulty of trail to be taken. Always try to be self-sufficient and carry with you the necessary to face possible emergency situations and a first aid kit.

Most of the trails are beaten by walkers. No mechanical beating, daily or periodical, is forseen and no specific signs have been placed on the itineraries to show the way. Eeven where scheduled, the beating of some trails by means of snowmobiles, will not be daily but only occasional or following a snowfall. Anyway this does not prevent the presence of some icy and slippery spots on the tracks, especially in the parts placed in shadow. Observe carefully the terrain you are walking on and be always equipped in a proper way.
