Safety information

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. In the event of fresh snow, snowshoes are also recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low. As you might imagine, the accessibility of these mountain trails depends entirely on the conditions found at any given time, such as the weather and other natural and environmental conditions. Therefore, before you set out, you should check the status of the trail by contacting alpine guides, lodge operators, or the local tourist office or park information office.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Madonna di Campiglio, by cable car Colarin Patascoss, you reach Patascoss area. From the cableway station, 1.750m , descend on the right side of the run, paying attention to skiers, for about 100m till you reach the road and enter a firs wood. Continue on the road for another hundred meters until you reach a small bridge; from here, turn right at the flag indicating the route and take the track that goes into the woods. The first part in vegetation is easy and flat, leads to "Casinel" in about 20 minutes, where you can admire a typical rustic mountain farm. After passing the farm turn left. Here the path becomes steeper and more panoramic. In about 30 minutes you'll find yourself at the 5 Laghi refuge. To return, follow the same route backward  and then descend to Madonna di Campiglio with the cable car. It is possible to go down along the slope to the starting point on skis (Colarin-Patascoss cable car summit station).
