From the Dal Piàz mountain hut, follow the track leading downhill through the meadows. Further along, the track merges with the dirt road that departs from the mountain hut, CAI trail 801.
There are many clearly visible shortcuts you can use to avoid following the dirt road the whole way. Especially important, at 1,800 m, is the trail leading downhill on the left. Take it to avoid the long unpaved road route towards the north-west. The trail then splits up - the higher section passes along a slightly exposed ridge, while the lower trail is not exposed at all.
At 1634 m, pay particular attention to the signpost indicating a trail on the right that leaves the unpaved road and leads through a meadow and then into a wooded area.
After about 2 to 2.5 hours, you’ll arrive at the village of Croce d’Aune, where you’ll follow the signs for the Alta Via no.2, which shares the same route. Take the trail that leads to the east across mostly flat ground up to Stalle Norcenadego, where you’ll head south until you reach the meadows of Paradis.
At this point, join the road on the right. It’ll soon become an asphalt road leading to the first built-up areas and then to the village of Norcen. From here, descend to Pedavena following the signposts. To get to Feltre, you can use public transport or the cycle routes leading to the city centre, which are marked on the GPS track.
