Variant of the third stage of the "Dolomiti di Brenta Trek" route, from Rifugio Graffer to Malga Spora.
If you want to shorten the circuit you can quickly reach Malga Spora (closed for the 2019 summer) from Rifugio Graffer and avoid the southern part of the Brenta Dolomites as well as the via ferrata.
This variant cuts the DBT tour halfway from east to west. Hikers who only have 3 or 4 days at disposal can choose to walk only either the southern loop (the most famous and exposed part) or the northern loop (very wild and never crowded).
Getting thereTo get to the Graffer Refuge more quickly, it’s possible to take the Grostè cable car that goes up to the Grostè Pass and from here go down along the SAT 301 trail to the refuge in 20 minutes. Alternatively, from the town of Madonna di Campiglio you can drive by car to the Spinale cable car which goes to the top of Monte Spinale, then proceed on foot following the SAT 331 trail for 45 minutes.
ParkingBig free parking at the departure of the Grostè cableway.
