Cars can be parked in the large car park below the lower Monte Agudo ski lift station) Auronzo – Taiarezze approx. 900 m). The route takes both ski lifts to the peak of the wooded peak (1573 m) site of winter ski lifts and the summer Fun Bob. From Rifugio Monte Agudo the path descends briefly on the first section of ski lift (Pomauria) to the limit of the forest below to footpath 271 which ups and downs along the Croda de Graziòso and Col Burgiòu ridge (wonderful views over the town and Auronzo lake) to the junction with footpath 1262 which climbs up from Valsàlega. Still following the ridge the path continues to Col dei Buoi and then the very beautiful Pian dei Buoi, a high open meadow with unparalleld views of the Oltrepiave and Centro Cadore Dolomites, Mts Cridola and Spalti di Toro and Mt. Duranno. It then climbs up on a former military road to Rifugio Ciareido (1969 m).

There are two descent options: past Forcella Paradiso (2045 m, the northernmost edge of the Ciastelin massif) and descending rapidly along the narrow Val Pomadonna gorge on scree or returning the way you came from Rifugio Pian dei Buoi before turning left into Val de Poòrse past Casera Valdàcene (1707 m) and continuing at length firstly to the left and then to the right of the Rin stream. After the junction with footpath number 272 descending from the Pomadonna valley, it continues along the whole of the Rin valley all the way to the bridge over the Ansiei river and the level cycle track along the whole Auronzo valley to your stating point.
