Access to the starting point:
a) From the route of Gorenjska: after crossing the border, drive through Trbiž and then along the motorway through the Kanalska valley, past Moggio to the Carnia (Tolmezzo) exit, where you continue in the direction of Udine to Pušje vasia (Venzone). In the centre of the town, a signpost directs you to cross the bridge over the river Tilment to Pioverne, from where you will arrive shortly in Bordano on the local road, follow the main street, and then park in the immediate vicinity of the bus stop.
b) From the direction of Primorska: after crossing the border (Trieste / Nova Gorica), follow the motorway past Vidmo in the direction of Trbiz to the Humin exit (Gemona del Friuli). On the main road, a signpost directs you to cross the bridge over the Tilment to Braulins, where you continue to the right towards Bordano and Interneppo. Before leaving the town, turn right and park.
Path description:
From the bus station parking lot, turn right onto the ascending road, at the end of which your route begins. After a short flight of steps and a bridge over a ravine, it leads into the woods, where it soon begins to climb in short switchbacks. After about 150 metres of climbing, we reach a level area where we continue straight ahead at a crossroads (the 'butterfly path', Sentiero delle farfalle, continues on the left). After crossing a mountain road, it starts climbing again at about the same rhythm, briefly crossing a forest road a couple of times. After a further 150 metres of ascent, it begins to cross to the east, becomes slightly more difficult, and is also protected by a steel cable in a short stretch at the exposed passages over ravines. After a while we reach the votive chapel, and shortly afterwards we rejoin the main road, where a beautiful viewpoint with the Chapel of Our Lady awaits us on a bend. The path follows the road upwards for a few metres, then climbs steeply up the initial steps and crosses it several times. When you reach the edge of the plateau (altopiano M. San Simeone), the slope ends and the path continues along the mountain road, which leads you in an arc past individual houses to the top of the plateau, where the Church of St Simeon stands, rebuilt after the great earthquake of 1976. You can get here from the valley, by turning off at the pass between Bordano and Interneppo.
The road turns to macadam, which soon leads into a distinctly karst world with a predominantly beech forest. After a few minutes, the path turns right into a rising valley and becomes a little more difficult to follow. The route remains the same all the way to the top.
