It is ideal when you don't want to move too far from the villages of Cavalese, Varena and Tesero. The route is completely in the sun and offers an enchanting view of the villages of the lower Val di Fiemme and most of the peaks of the Lagorai chain. In the distance, to the east you can see the Brenta Dolomites massif.

Walking on this track at sunset allows you to see the peaks of the Lagorai light up in pink.

Safety information

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
