The itinerary runs mostly along a forestry road and then a trail as it winds through forests and pastures overlooking the Campo Carlo Magno Pass. This circuit does not involve a great deal of elevation gain, but it is not to be underestimated for its length. The itinerary crosses the ski slopes near Malga Vigo and Malga Zeledria. Both of these alpine farmhouses are excellent spots to enjoy a hot beverage or local alpine delicacies as you look out onto the amazing panorama of the Brenta Dolomites.

Safety information

Important: At the points where the itinerary crosses the ski slopes, we recommend keeping to the edges so as not to impede skiers coming down the slope.

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. In the event of fresh snow, snowshoes are also recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low. As you might imagine, the accessibility of these mountain trails depends entirely on the conditions found at any given time, such as the weather and other natural and environmental conditions. Therefore, before you set out, you should check the status of the trail by contacting alpine guides, lodge operators, or the local tourist office or park information office.
