From the valley head in San Maddalena/Val Casies Valley (1460m, refreshment point, parking) follow the trail marking no. 12 over the bridge. Turn left and after the Schlosserhof farm take another left turn. After a few meters turn right and reach the old cattle drive. Near the Burgerhof farm cross the bridge of the Pfoi stream and follow the forest road. Small clearings will open up in the forest repeatedly revealing impressive views over the valley and the peaks of the Dolomites of Braies reaching high into the sky.
