On this route you can reach the beautiful hollow of Fuciade well-known also thanks to the famous and refined restaurant/refuge bearing the same name. From Someda, the track passes through the entire San Pellegrino Valley, mostly on forest roads, eventually leading back on the main road.From the village of Someda, continue on Strada de Sèn Roch, soon leaving the village. You pass the Austrian World War I fort and follows the "Rif de Sèn Pelegrin" stream to reach "Ronchi", the Lusia downstream station of the cabin lift and from here, with a steep but short climb, the bridge over the "Rif de Sèn Pelegrin". Cross the main road and turn right onto the forest road that runs parallel to the river. You go past "Fango" and continue in the direction of San Pellegrino Pass. You come out of the woods at the bar/restaurant Malga Negritella then take the national road. Up at the pass, you go on for about 200 m to the other side and at a flyover over the track you go left onto the road that leads to the parking lot near the Hotel Miralago, from where you take the dirt road, which mostly flat, that allows you to reach the valley of Fuciade. For the return trip, shortly after the Fuciade Refuge, at the fork, go down to the left along the steep road that leads on to the national road of San Pellegrino Pass. It climbs up and then one has the long descent towards Moena.
