The route begins at Canezza, just a few kilometres from the outskirts of Pergine. Here there is a turning onto the provincial road no. 8 which climbs the right orographic slope of the Valle dei Mocheni. Right from the very beginning the going is pretty tough, with regular but steep hills, and long stretches where there is little or no respite. The last stretch up to Passo Redebus (the left turning just before the town of Sant’Orsola), is especially gruelling.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

The pass, situated in the heart of the woods on the slopes of the Lagorai mountain range, links the valley inhabited by the ethnic minorities of Mocheni and Pinè. An important archaeological find made it possible to study the lifestyle of the nomadic hunting populations who settled in this area in the Mesolithic age. For centuries the area was also inhabited by “canopi”, miners who quarried the mountains for silver. At Palù del Ferina, just a few kilometres from the pass, is the Mocheno-Cimbro Cultural Institute, well worth a visit, which illustrates the cultural identity and traditions of this Alpine ethnic minority.
