The itinerary passes through places that were the scene of the First World War and it is possible to find caves and remains of Italian barracks. Traces of trenches and tangles of barbed wire will often attract the hiker's gaze. At first you will see Lusia lakes from above, being laid on the basin of an ancient volcanic crater.

But not only history: on this path full of suggestions, it can happen to be able to observe eagles in flight. We are in fact always for most of the time over the altitude of 2000 meters.

Author’s recommendation

Do not miss the view on the Pale di San Martino, Colbricon and Lagorai from Malga Bocche.

Questions and answers

Question from Matteo Pretelli · July 25, 2021 · Community
Salve, domandavo se l'escursione e' segnalata e quindi semplice per le famiglie. Ho una bimba di 8 anni che cammina molto e regge una distanza di 13/14 km ma volevo verificare la fattibilità. Grazie, Matteo

Buongiorno Matteo, il sentiero di montagna è segnalato e tabellato. Il tracciato è evidente ma, oltre ai km deve tenere conto del dislivello in salita oltre alla quota sulla quale si sviluppa il percorso.

Fatto in senso inverso, ottima escursione non troppo pesante. Zero tratti esposti e/o difficili

Il tratto di forestale tra gli impianti e malga bocche e' piuttosto noioso se fatto alla fine con gambe stanche, meglio forse fare il giro in senso anti orario. Fantastico comunque, spettacolare il panorama dal terzo lago (fuori itinerario)
