The route starts from the Paolina car park. Follow the signs for the path [6] towards Lake Carezza. Cross the suspension bridge from where you reach the car park, cross it until you reach the underpass to Lake Carezza. Walk along the right bank of Lake Carezza until you reach the hiking trail [11]. Follow the path [11] as far as the Radura di Mezzo (1839 m), and then continue on the labyrinth trail [20] until the junction with path [18]. Turn right on the path [18] (direction Forcella Latemar). After a steep climb, you will reach path [18A], which leads flat across a meadow. After a short ascent, you reach the Latemar meadows and the Mountain cinema Val d'Ega (1861 m), which offers a magnificent view of the Catinaccio and the Roda di Vaèl.
