The route is not fully signposted. Follow the fuchsia colored signs that are located at the main points.

From the Oratory of the Madonna della Neve, take the path on the left which zig-zags up towards the central road of the town, up to the fountain house and the panoramic binoculars. Access the path from the left that goes up behind the fountain house between the condominiums until you reach the high road of the town of Mera. Continue right until the Lyskamm condominium, which can be reached by going up the detour that you take on the left once you have almost reached the end of the road.

Pass in front of the condominium and once passed, take the path towards the left into the woods, taking the fuchsia signs as a reference. Since there is no basic path, the trail in the woods may vary over time and not correspond to the one on the map. Use the signs posted on the trees as a reference for direction.

Climb up the beech forest, first towards the west and then towards the east, until you reach the end of the woods, where the destination will be clear, which you can reach from the right, passing near the "La Tana" playground.

Once you reach the refreshment point at Boschetto, for the return, follow the route that runs along the left side of the Boschetto ski slope (M7), towards the mountain station of the Mera-Scopello chairlift. Pay close attention to always stay to the side and not invade the ski slope.

Continue until you reach the second house on the left. From here turn left crossing a short stretch in the woods to reach the high road of the town of Mera.

Continue right until you reach the square of the former Rifugio Capricorno and then the mountain station of the Mera-Scopello chairlift.

The central part of the village of Mera is on your left and can be reached by taking the road on the left that passes through it.
