You will come to a second gate which opens onto a paved road. At this point, turn left and walk 100 metres to Masenello. Pass through the hamlet and follow the signs for Marianetto – Marian. In the hamlet, you will find a small space and a gate on the right. Go through and take a white track uphill for about 800 metres until you reach Malga Marianetto. Take the paved road and continue for 700 metres until you approach Malga Marian. About 50 metres before Malga Marian, you will find the signs for Contrada Gaspari. Follow the path to the right downhill into the meadow for another 700 metres and then turn left onto the dirt road. Continue to Gaspari, return to the paved road and then continue for 2 km downhill, passing through the hamlet of Masetto and returning to the square in San Francesco.
