The excursion starts with a nice walk in a forest of large Swiss pine trees, on a rough and flat road. Once you reach the lakes of Colbricon, the itinerary climbs between meadows and a stony path, in a constant ascent that ends with the exceptional view from the top of the lakes. The view ranges from the Catinaccio Group to the Marmolada, up to the Pale di San Martino and the majestic Paneveggio forest.

Author’s recommendation

In the 1970s, archaeological excavations near the lakes brought to light artifacts (arrows, blades, burins) which confirmed the presence of hunters from the Mesolithic era (10,000 - 8,000 years ago).

Turn-by-turn directions

From Malga Rolle cross the road and walk along the dirt road that leads to the departure of the Paradiso chairlift.

Here the trail n° 348 leads to Rifugio Colbricon (1.927 m). Along the lake, shortly after the Rifugio, the trail turns left and goes up the west ridge. Once there, cross the upland that leads to the Cavallazza peak, leaving the main trail to a uphill path (highest point 2.324 m).

The trail goes on along the east ridge and descends into a winding path reaching the small underlying valley. On the opposite side, the trail slightly goes up toward the Cavallazza Piccola peak; do not consider the path on the right side and keep walking left, going north-east, toward Passo Rolle.

Once reached the path junction take the left trail, not well visible, (watch out for the signage) which passes underneath the chairlift. Keep walking on the trail that turns then into a ski slope that leads to Passo Rolle.

Before the pass you will find a dirt road that turns left, descending along another ski slope to the departure of chairlift Paradiso. Pass the chairlift and walk up on the right side until you get to Malga Rolle.
