The excursion offers magnificent views of Cima Cece (the highest peak of the Lagorai chain) and the Dolomites of Val di Fassa. It is an itinerary that allows you to fully savor the wild nature of the Lagorai and to touch the variety of small rivers and alpine lakes that it hosts. As often happens when walking in the Lagorai, after the Forcella Moregna, there are remains of entrenchments and walkways of the Great War.

Author’s recommendation

It is funny that one of the three lakes, the "Lago Bruto" (meaning ugly in italian), is actually one of the most beautiful and deepest lakes in the Lagorai!

Destination

Malga Valmaggiore

Turn-by-turn directions

From the village of Predazzo take the road that leads to Valmaggiore. Park near the Valmaggiore Alpine Diary (1.630 m) and take the forest road No. 339 with directions to Lake Moregna.

The road (former mule track of the war), which later turns into a path, first goes into the woods and then comes out in the pasture. As soon as the path becomes almost flat, turn left where, after a few minutes, you see first Malga Moregna and then Lago di Moregna (2.058 m).

Retrace our steps and continue uphill, always on path No. 339 towards Lago delle Trote and Lago Brutto. At the junction, first take the path that leads to Lago delle Trote (2.103 m), then retrace your steps and continue for a short while until you reach Lago Brutto (2.207 m).

From here you can return back along the same route or continue on path No. 349 which leads to Forcella di Moregna (2.397 m).

From the Forcella take trail No. 349B which leads again to Lake Moregna walking along stretches of mule track. You return then back to Malga Valmaggiore along the route taken in the outward journey.
