Here there is a major crossroads with different destinations inidcated. The path continues straight on towards the rocky massif of Cime di Plator. Cross the forest of San Antonio to reach a fork with a wide paved road that leads up to Cancano. At this point you have already completed 10 km, all on the flat, a stretch that is also used for altitude training by longdistance runners. Continue up the road for a couple of turns: after two tunnels you reach the saddle of the Torri di Fraele. From there continue through an equally beautiful environment towards the Lago delle Scale and the Cancano dams.Lago delle Scale The lake is situated at 2000 metres above sea level and has no inflow or outflow: it is fed by deeplying aquifers.
