Description

This mid-mountain hike is on the steep and sunny southern slope of Mount Bedolé (1,792 m asl), watershed between the valleys of Primiero and Lòzen, which stretches above the villages of Mezzano and Imer. Although the slope is steep and not particularly beautiful if compared other in Primiero, this portion of the slope has the advantages of being extremely sunny (offering therefore the opportunity to be able to walk there even during the winter season), of allowing its visitors beautiful sights of the valley and its surrounding mountains, as well as of preserving intact rural architectures, present in the various meadows of the so-called Solìvi (tr. sunny spots).

The route begins in the center of the village of Imèr (643 m asl), by the bridge over the Rio San Pietro, near the town hall and the village church. For completeness, given the loop drawn by the itinerary, it is also possible to start the itinerary from the center of Mezzano and / or in the opposite direction (clockwise) to that described here.

From Imèr, the route heads toward the village of Mezzano, following the main road (SS50) leading to the central square of Mezzano, where it takes the street “Via Don Luigi Bonat” on the left, heading uphill toward the N. The street crosses the charming village with its “canzèi” (tr. woodpiles) artistically revisited in a permanent exhibition. Leaving the village behind, the itinerary continues to climb to the fork located at the end of the inhabited hamlet – just after the artistic representation of the 1966 flood – where it proceeds turning left and climbing up the paved road toward Camp. The ascent, steep in places, features a nice view of the village of Mezzano, the mountain range of Vette Feltrine, offering at the same time remarkable glimpses of the more distant Dolomite groups of Cimonega and Pala (Pale di San Martino). 

Having passed the junction with the “Via Nòva” trail (Signpost No. 357) at Noàl (870 m asl) and the successive “masi” (farmsteads) of Pradét and Segnàna (1,000 m asl), right after the next hairpin bend the route takes the gravel road “Strada Forestale Larghe” to the NE toward Dismóni. After a stretch of about half a kilometer, near the gully of Val de Stòna, the gravel road crosses (first fork) the trail of the Signpost No. 379, which climbs from Molarén. At the junction, the itinerary turns left and follows – always uphill – the SIgnpost No. 379 toward the locations of Colalti (1,233 m asl) and Camp, which are reached in a few minutes. From the fork at the top of the meadows of Camp (1,282 m asl) the panorama opens wide again, turning S toward the grassy basin of Camp, characterized by small groups of huts perfectly preserved in their original structure. 

From the junction of Camp, the trail continues initially slightly downhill on the paved road that skirts the meadows. A few tens of meters after passing the junction (to the right) with the rough asphalt road of the Signpost No. 358, the itinerary continues along the flat gravel road “Strada Forestale Buscapiana” toward the O, until it crosses the path of the Signpost No. 378, descending from the summit of Cima Redasega (1,491 m asl) and the shrine of Sant’Antonio

From the junction with the Signpost No. 378 (highest point of the route), the route leaves the gravel road to proceed along the steep trail of the Signpost No. 378 towards Imèr, which descends mostly into the forest, while crossing several farms and meadows with panoramic views (Costa dei Péti / Coste Alte, Rizòl), before reaching the location of Coladìna (815 m asl), where it continues its descent on a more comfortable paved road that arrives directly at the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, in the upper part of the village of Imèr.
