An itinerary of intermediate difficulty that takes you quickly through the forest around town up to the alpine pasture lands of Monte Spinale. The central positioning of Monte Spinale makes it the perfect spot to enjoy a full 360° view out over the World Heritage Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello and Presanella glaciers. The fields between Malga Fevri and Monte Spinale are the perfect spot to get some sun and have a picnic. Once at the top, we recommend taking a break at the luxurious Chalet Fiat. Numerous itineraries start from here, such as the crossing towards Graffer, and there are various options for returning back down to town, including the lift system.

Author’s recommendation

Just after the switchback before the malga, take the detour to the south known as Giro al Doss, which features an amazing view of Doss and the Rendena Valley.
