Trekking to Pociace, nice view on Catinaccio!

Today we point out a beautiful walk that can be done both in winter and summer to Pociace , made two days ago with our dogs.
This is a forest lodge located at 1700 under Cima Dodici and Sas Aut. From this place the view on Vigo di Fassa and Catinaccio is truly spectacular and is definitely worth the effort to get there! Also recommended for walking with animals!
We left our hotel at 14am and after about an hour and a half we arrived at our destination
We went down to the bed of the Avisio torrent and then climbed right on the left for the 630 trail, well  indicating Pociace. The uphill climb is 400 m, the trail is easy, suitable for all but climbs. We recommend bringing the sticks that facilitate the ascent and especially the descent.
The hut can also be reached by two forest roads starting from Soraga and about half way between Vigo and Soraga from the cycle path. Obviously following the road the climb is longer but definitely sweeter and more feasible, in the beautiful season, even in MTB.
The hut is  normally closed while the bivouac is always open on the lower floor. Outside there are some benches and a picnic area. You will not forget  easily that place with that panorama ! A short distance away is also a source of fresh water.
Once you have taken a breath, for those who feel it, the trail goes in the direction of Cima 12, but in that case it is necessary to start early in the morning as the excursion becomes rather long and challenging. There is also the possibility to continue on the right towards the Troy of the Baranchies and then Sas de la Crousc.
Silence is appreciated!
