North of Barcis you climb through wonderful Cellina gorge on the main road until turning off toward Claut. Shortly afterward you reach another gorge leading north, Val Settimane. This is a fantastic narrow road, sometimes paved, sometimes gravel, leading you to a trailhead at Pussa. On foot or a mountain bike you can continue into the Dolomiti Friulane, but today I turned around here. It's a magical place, so rugged and spectacular. Be a shame to miss it if you are in the area.
