On the road along the Santa Maria reservoir we have time to warm up and mentally prepare for the Passo dell' uomo, because the rough military road in Val Termine has it all. But after the top of the pass we enjoy the run on a single trail, over flower-rich alpine pastures and past marmot colonies.

Already from a distance we can see the Capanna Cadagno, which is slightly elevated on a hill. The modern architecture is captivating: the old hut has been preserved in its core, but has been extended all around with bright and functional rooms. On the terrace we settle down, there are even some sun loungers available.

For the way back we choose the natural road over the Alp Carorescio with a view of the Pizzo delle Colombe, which stands in its shape and shape like a stranger in the landscape. No, it is not sugar that fills gutters and crevices, it is the sugar-shaped dolomite that initially worried the builders of the NEAT. We leave the Lagozzo della Segna on the left, except that someone would like an icy cold bath. Due to the Val dates, the loose stones again require a lot of attention, but then we can easily walk along the lake to the parking lot.


Val Piora is marmot land.


We follow the marked path to the Passo dell'uomo and the Cadagno hut. For the way back we choose the alpine road in the direction of Passo del sole, but at point 2254 we turn off again to the Passo dell'uomo.
