The walk starts and finishes in the centre of Piazzola (1,314 m). Car parking is available near the church and, from there, you can follow the road on foot towards Somrabbi (1,359 m).
This walk allows you to enjoy some of the best views in the village, from farmhouses, traditional houses and little details, passing the Somrabbi creamery and continuing in the direction of Colèr. As soon as the road flattens out, take a forest track leading uphill on the right, leading you to above Somrabbi where you continue on the flat to Cavallar (1,410 m).
This route marks the natural boundary between the forest and the village and gets the sun all year round. It offers a fascinating view over the entire valley and the surrounding summits. It is interesting to observe the changes from field to forest, the domains of man and mother nature; one cuts the grass and keeps the fields tidy whilst the other takes over every inch of uncultivated land.
The forest track, which passes by several of the traditional Val di Rabbi farmhouses, is entirely within the Stelvio National Park and leads to the hamlet of Cavallar, where you can descend to the starting point.
