Eventually you reach a grassy path and continue up through the houses till 850 meters. A man in front of the last house said the road finishes here. I asked if I could walk through the woods carrying my bike: he said I could try. So I went up past the hunting blind, through the thorny blackberry bushes and up a stack of rocks till joining the gravel road (to Villagio, the man had said).
I tried another road hoping to find a way to bypass the portage in future, but it dead ended. So I headed up the gravel road then down until reaching the main highway from Vittorio Veneto to il Cansiglio. Here I headed down quickly to Osigo, traversed to Montaner and took the shortcut down to Sarmede. Great ride on a gorgeous day.
