Long but easy itinerary among the pretty forest of fir trees. Almost the entire walk follows a well-marked forest road and there is no danger of avalanche.

This little-frequented route allows you to immerse yourself in the silence of nature, interrupted only by the noise of the Rio delle Stue and the wind among the branches of the fir trees. Your effort will be rewarded by a lonely environment of rare beauty, where Stellune peak overlooks the valley.

Author’s recommendation

Along the way the passage of the Vaia storm (October 2018) is visible. The wolf has spontaneously returned to living in Val Cadino.

Safety information

Almost the entire walk follows a well-marked forest road and there is no danger of avalanche. 

 

THE 10 RULES FOR HIKERS 

  1. Prepare your itinerary beforehand
  2. Choose an itinerary that suits your physical abilities
  3. Choose suitable clothes and equipment
  4. Check the weather forecast
  5. Hiking by yourself is more risky; if this is the case, take a mobile phone with you
  6. Leave information about your itinerary and your expected return time
  7. If you are not sure about your itinerary, contact an Alpine Guide
  8. Pay attention to signposts and directions that you find along your way
  9. Do not hesitate in going back if you feel too tired
  10. In case of emergency call 112

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions from the local Mountain Guides. GPS tracks are merely indicative of the more standard routes but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions.

Turn-by-turn directions

WAY UP From the bridge follow the forest road (nr 318) which runs along the left-side of the stream Stue. The road gets into a beautiful spruce firs wood and reaches a clearing where Malga Stue Bassa is located (1400 m): from here you have the sight of the impressive peak of Montalon. Keep walking on the same road, ignoring all the deviations, and once passed Malga Stue Alta you reach Malga Cazzorga (1845 m).
