Route description

Take the car towards the Passo Palade and then continue until just outside San Felice and just after the Gasthaus Rose (inn) a narrow road turns sharply to the left (signposted “Felixer Weiher”). Follow this road for approx. 1 km uphill to a small car park in the forest. From here (1350 m) follow trail no. 9 for 40 min. up a moderate incline to the wonderful Felixer Weiher pond. Next head right for a while around the lake and briefly along trail no. 511 then turn left and immediately right to continue on trail no. 500 (or old trail no. 512), initially down into a deep saddle then climbing again for 1 hr 45 min from Felixer Weiher to the summit of the 1865-metre-high Monte Macaion. Wonderful views into the far distance. Return route as per the outbound leg.
