The trail that from Maso Raris leads to the crossroads with the San Martino di CastrozzaSirór cycle-pedestrian path, inaugurated in 2020, is a downhill walk almost entirely immersed in the fresh atmosphere offered by the forest of the slope of Mount Bedolé, along the well-maintained and signposted Signpost No. 359 of CAI-SAT (Italian Alpine Club), which connects the location of Piana di Sirór to the one of Valmesta on the orographic right of the torrent of Cismón.

From Maso Raris (1,154 m asl), head slightly downhill towards the nearby houses, heading E; after 50 m, once you have reached the houses, walk the further 50 m along the gravel road descending to the main road SS 50 of Passo Rolle, near the bus stop of Valmesta (1,126 m asl). Once by the main road, you follow it uphill for about a hundred meters, until you reach the crossroads with the path of the Signpost No. 359, which starts on the right towards Piana / Sirór. The very first part of the descent proceeds pleasantly along the eastern borders of the meadows of Valmesta, on the cobbled track; once you leave the meadows behind you, the path begins to descend steeply towards the bed of the Cismón torrent, in a stretch that might feature some slippery sections in mid-seasons, where it is needed to be careful. After crossing the stream of Rio Valmesta, the steep descent leads to the green meadows of the location called Piana di Sirór, laying between the village of Sirór and the hydroelectric plant of Zivertaghe, where the slope becomes gentler and where the path joins a gravel road that runs alongside the Cismón stream. After crossing the bridge called Pont del Fritz (927 m asl), you will soon reach the junction with the San Martino di CastrozzaSirór cycle path, from which you can decide whether to continue towards San Martino or descend to Sirór.
