Especially when a northerly wind blows, the views from the Denti della Vecchia are breathtaking. As the trail passes through deciduous woodland, it reveals glimpses of the sparkling lake through the trees; their shade is most welcome on a hike that places considerable demands on walkers – but rewards them with a real sense of achievement.

By Pian di Scagn you have the possibility of making a quick detour to the 1546 meter-high Monte Boglia border summit. Following the descent direction Bré you find yourself once again on the intended Cimadera – Brè hiking route of this ridge tour.
