The trail begins in Piazza Grober , on the right of the Grober monument mt.1200. Pass behind the Unione Alagnese theatre, through the Reale village and cross the white road which goes up to the Resiga village and you will find the true starting point of the n. 3 trail. The mule trail, initially full of holes, follows then with quite a number of steps, after that you will pass the casolare Stiga (a small, isolated house), leaving on the left the path leading down to the Caldaia d'Otro , and finally you will reach the lovely wooden fountain dedicated to Enrico Giordano. The trail continues by climbing to the right of the fountain (the n. 3 fork for the Alpe Gender is closed) where you will find a number of zigzags leading up to the enchanting Otro plain (mt. 1664), which is about an hours walk. As you will discover, this is where the splendid typical Walser villages are located: Feglierec , Follu , Ciucche , Dorf , Scarpia and Weng which by following, you will end up in the Pian Misura alpeggio (pasture).
