In the beginning the “Ronda extrema” has the same trail like the “Ronda grande” through the Val Lomasone to Malga di Vigo, but from Sentiero dei Russi it leads first on an apparently unending trail almost 1,000 meters difference in altitude really powerfully downhill to Comano. Then another, energy sapping uphill awaits you towards Monte Casale – before the peak again quite new, magical forest trails come up towards Malga Valbona and from Prati del Granzoline at almost 1,400 meters difference in altitude and then it's time again for … the fine forest trails and meadow trails always alternating with the spectacular panorama views of the Dolomiti di Brenta. Back to Riva the route leads again on the same downhill like the two smaller rounds.
