Zuc Schiaramont

Today a ride to Forgaria in search of Castello Raimondo (confusingly there is a place by the same name in Le Marche regione, so instead I'll use the Friulano name Zuc Schiaramont).  I tried stopping at Forgaria's municipio, where many of the artifacts excavated at the site are displayed.  Unfortunately it was closed, so I headed up the hill toward San Rocco.  Eventually I reached a marker for the castello at Via Coletti, pointing toward CAI 814 trail.  I decide to ride as much of this paved section as possible on Fedaia, and succeeded until the last 20 meters or so when it got up around 18%:  I don't have the legs for that yet this year.  I walked around and found the trail to the castle, also another trail called Las Gratolatas.  Didn't hike today but I'll come back soon and hike up to the elusive castello.
