Author’s recommendation

It is an easy route, some stretches along a dirt road, particularly suitable for families and children. The Malga Mondifrà is the only place of refreshment along the route, and it offers typical lunch and dinner. Booking is recommended. The itinerary may be started from the intermediate Grostè station or on foot from Fortini in the direction of Malga Vaglianella.
