The name of the trail pays attention to the fact that you cross places that characterized the First World War, between the Austrian and the Italian front. Once at the destination, between the Cauriol mountain hut and Malga Sadole, you can see the Piccolo Cauriol. 

Monte Cauriol and Monte Cardinal were witnesses of the Great War, with thousands of deaths due to the fierce fighting, but also due to the frost and avalanches.

Author’s recommendation

Also suitable for E-MTB. Although the technical level required is not very high, the altitude difference still requires good physical fitness. E-bike charging station at Malga Sadole.

Destination

Ziano di Fiemme

Turn-by-turn directions

The road to Val di Sadole starts in Ziano: the first section is paved and then becomes a dirt road but never too difficult. After 5 km, the climb increases and the trail continues into the wood, leading to the wide sunny meadows of Val di Sadole, where cows graze.

At the end of the valley, Mount Cauriol stands out, whose top is 7 meters shorter than it was originally due to a bomb explosion during World War One.

On the way back, pay attention to the last section (20% descent).
