Immediately after the car park, take a left onto hiking trail no. 37. This occasionally lively trail brings you to Braies di Fuori after about 10 km, from here continue for around 1 km along the road and then turn right onto the cycle path towards Villabassa, Dobbiaco back to the starting point of Sesto/Moso to the Bike Hotel Alpenblick ****s.
