Sentiero che si sviluppa sotto un bosco di faggi, quindi caratterizzato da fondo molto drenante ma caratterizzato dalla presenza costante di pietre smosse, foglie e rami secchi.

In discesa dall'Alpe Cova la traccia è inizialmente molto larga e perde rapidamente quota tra molti sassi e stretti tornantini. Gli occhi più attenti noteranno una via più scorrevole sulla destra.
Superata questa prima parte inizia il divertimento per gli amanti dei rock garden, poi il sentiero torna ad essere più "scorrevole" tra qualche tornante da fare in nose press fino a congiungersi con la strada sterrata/cementata per la chiesetta del Sacro Cuore o con il sentiero di collegamento con la traversata bassa

Pur essendo molto ripida anche lei, in MTB è comunque preferibile salire all'Alpe Cova da Pasturo per poi scendere su questo sentiero.

Prestare moltissima attenzione agli escursionisti a piedi, che soprattutto nel fine settimana (in qualsiasi stagione) percorrono questa via per raggiungere il rifugio Antonietta, le baite dell'Alpe Cova o la vetta della Grigna Settentrionale.
