This itinerary touches upon the most panoramic spots of the Tione di Trento area, namely Malga Cengledino, that looks out onto the Brenta Group and on the Busa di Tione, and Monte Cengledino. Thanks to its central position, Monte Cengledino allows visitors a wide angle view from Val Rendena in the north to Bleggio – Lomaso in the east and to the upper Val del Chiese in the south.

The only unsightly view is that caused by the signal repeaters located close to the crucifix at the summit. With a bit of maneuvering you can still take nice pictures of the crucifix, however.

Safety information

In the month of August, the road is usually opened to vehicle traffic up to Malga Cengledino. This shortens the trek by about 30-40  minutes.

 

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.

Turn-by-turn directions

Climb up along the tarmac road that enters the forest, ascending with a few bends in the direction of Malga Cengledino.

At the first bend on the right, leave the road and keep on going straight, following the SAT red/white signs. Trail No. 225 crosses over the road repeatedly.

You will enter the meadow of the mountain dairy at about 1590 m .

Cross the whole meadow to the car park above Malga Cengledino (1678 m – bench and SAT sign). On this section the trail and the signs are not always fully visible. When in doubt, follow the road.

At the sign posted at an altitude of 1678 m, climb into the meadow up above the car park. Sat signpost No. 225 (indications for Valbona lakes).

When you have reached the highest point of the meadow, the trail climbs for a last short stretch in the forest and then with a long traverse route crosses over a few hollows.

Once you are in Pian de San Martin locality (1870 m), a meadow located at the bottom of the northern slope that climbs up to the summit, now visible thanks to the large antennas, you will find the crossroads for the peak (sign, trail No. 235A). Leave the SAT trail No. 225 and start ascending to the left. A short distance further, along trail No. 225, there is a bench and a picture depicting St. Martin.

Climb up the entire north side, along various bends, until you reach the western crest (sign) and walk for the last few metres to the crucifix on the summit of Monte Cengledino (2137 m).

Trace your steps back down to the departure point.
