Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
Tips and hints
Ascent: from the bridge follow the trail winding up to Malga Juribrutto (1912 m). Ignor the bridge and head up the sparse woodland northwards for a few hundred meters. Then turn left and after a long ascending traverse you reach open terrain. To get out of the forest quicker, take short cuts between rocky terrain and large trees.
Continue to the top on flat stretches interrupted by steeper slopes, always following the broad ridge up to the right. Some steeper sections or rocky ledges are bypassed left, then always return near the ridge. The final stretch is flat and leads to the small summit cross.
Below the summit, at about 2700 m, you find a small shelter for a rest.
Descent: by the same route
Getting thereFrom Predazzo drive on SS 50 direction Passo Rolle. Shortly after location Paneveggio (13,8 km from Predazzo) turn left on SP 81 to Passo Valles. After 4 km you reach the bridge (way mark Malga Juribrutto-Lago Juribrutto).
