This route begins at the church of Pai, taking the paved road for a short distance.

At the first bend, follow path no. 37; at the next hairpin we find a splendid “calchera” still in good condition.

The term “Calcàre” or “Calchère”, depending on the area, identifies the ancient kilns used in the past for the production of lime, present in many areas of Monte Baldo and no longer used for many decades. These are barrel-shaped buildings with a circular plan, partly underground and with a perforated roof, with thick stone walls and a small access located on the above ground part.

The path climbs towards the Tanella Grotto and Ca ‘Vernazze.

The Tanella cave opens on the slopes of Monte Baldo, in an area protected by the Natura 2000 network, and extends into the heart of the mountain for about 400 m. It presents suggestive and spectacular environments created by water: meanders, tunnels, stalactites and stalagmites of various sizes and colors.

Continue to climb along trail no. 37 up to the dirt road (then asphalted) that leads to the coast to the hamlets of San Zeno di Montagna.
