Leave your car in the oil factory parking lot, then take the XXIV Maggio and San Lorenzo roads, crossing the town of Olzano. After passing the "Il camino" restaurant and the "Sunclass bungalows" resort, you’ll reach a panoramic spot over the lake (25 minutes). Turn right on an unpaved road (trail 245 - giŕ 5) that zigzags up the Gumér hill. At the junction, head left and proceed along a fence. You’ll meet up again with the asphalt road for Piemp (15 min). After 200 m. you’ll reach the Bosco fountain and, bearing right, the homes of Bósco de sůra.
At the intersection (10 min), bear left (trail nr. 258) on the trail that borders the Terzančch fauna area that belongs to the Regional Forestry, and proceed to Fornaci. Passing several barns, proceed to Furnŕs de déter and Val dela gčra, where the road ascends slightly with two bends. In the next three intersections, take the road to the left, then the road to the right (15 minutes), and then, as the road ascends, the road to the right.
The road, lined by pine trees, levels out, borders the meadow of Terre Bianche, then ascends, traveling next to the high voltage pylon nr. 291. Bear right and after about 100 meters, you’ll leave the mule trail near the stone marker of A.S.D.F. (make sure the nr. 258 is on the back!). Here you’ll take the trail to the right that climbs up Mount Monte Segŕble, crosses the pine grove and after a long stretch, meets up (55 minutes) with the unpaved mule trail coming from Cima Piemp. Turn left onto the trail: after descending along the trail for about 50 meters, you’ll reach Passo d’Ere (1,131), a well-marked crossroads for several inland excursions.
In one direction, the trail leads to Půria, Scarpapé and Ca di Natone, or Cadria (trail nr. 69-68) or Cima Rest (trail nr. 69), in the other, it crosses the Colomba Pass (1,109 m), via Bocca Paolone (953 m), then proceeds to Valvestino or Costa and Gargnano.
Take trail nr. 259, which descends sharply, leading to a crossroads (15 min.): to the left is the trail that meets up with 258, to the right is a road with barrier that leads to the Visěne and the continuance of 259 which you’ll take to the Luné home (15 min). Turn right, following the signs at the base of the trunk of a huge beech tree. You circle the valley, and when you reach the junction, turn right. You’ll walk up to the small pond in front of the meadow and the home of Gačs (10 minutes), dominated by the peaks of the Visěne.
Turning left and crossing the meadow, after a few hundred meters you’ll reach a bush-lined pasture. In the front is the imposing Mount Monte Denervo, and on the right is a hunting lodge. Follow the descending road, at times paved with cement. You’ll see the meadows and homes of Paül (25 min.). You’ll continue your descent, passing the stream in the Valley of Nota, bordering the meadows and the farm of Pasěne. You’ll reach the source of the river of Cůel (25 min). After a few meters, you’ll find yourself on the Vione road that to the right heads to Passo Fobia, the Nangui malga (or Ŕngoi) and Bocca Paolone and to the left descends towards the homes of Tignale.
You continue your descent to the junction of Pozze and turn left on trail 251 along the plains of Viů and Val de Presŕ: Aer is 3 km away. Leaving to your right the connection with trail nr. 265 "B.V.G. - Sentiero Montagnoli" (this could be an interesting alternative that is not easy in the first stretch, for people who want to reach Aer along the "Via dei canŕi"), you’ll pass the bridges of Val de Presŕ and Val de Paě. Crossing a chestnut grove, you’ll reach Aer (1 hr. 25 min.). You’ll meet up with the asphalt road and proceed to Gardola, to the parking lot of the point of departure (30 min.).
