Second stage of the "Dolomiti di Brenta Trek" route, from Bivacco Costanzi to Rifugio Graffer.
From the Costanzi Bivouac heading towards the untamed Val del Vento you reach the ruins of Malga Scale. Then, continuing up and down through Val Centonia you get to Malga Mondifrà. From the malga, after leaving the large meadow, you go into the woods and easily ascend the Val Gelada ridge to the left until you first get to Malga Vaglianella, then following the forest path, the Vagliana malga. Leaving the green of the malgas and meadows behind you, continue along the rather steep path until you reach the Graffer refuge. From the refuge you can admire the jagged peaks and scree slopes of the Pietra Grande and Grostè Peaks.
For those wanting to start their tour from this point, the most convenient access is from Carciato, Val di Sole. Above the village of Carciato, in the locality of "La Gnocca", you can leave your car and continue on foot following the SAT 329 trail, taking you to the ruins of Malga Scale in 2hrs and 10 minutes. Refilling water along the trail: "Acqua dei Tartari" spring along the descent between Costanzi Bivouac and the ruins of Malga Scale, Malga Mondifrà, Malga Vaglianella, Malga Vagliana, spring below Passo Le Grasse, Rifugio Graffer. Malga Mondifrà has restaurant service and cheese sales but has no sleeping places for the night. Malga Vaglianella has a kitchen and bathroom.
