Following the Vanoi torrent up the valley of the same name, at a certain point the asphalt road comes to an end. Here - at 1,102 metres above sea level - is the Rifugio Refavaie, built out of a former inn that served woodcutters, deep in the largest forests in the Province of Trento crossed by paths and forestry tracks passing among towering conifers. An unspoilt area, where Trentino looks like Canada on a smaller scale. Near the refuge is a little lake for trout fishing, higher up are the peaks of the Great War (Cauriol) and the unspoilt flanks of the Lagorai. Open Winter: every weekend from December to May; also open in December in the period from Christmas to 6 January Summer: every day from 1 June to 30 October Before leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hut Walks Monte Cauriol can be easily reached in a total of 3 ½ hours (difficulty E) following firstly footpath no. 320, then the Peace Path or the Via degli Alpini. From Passo Sadole you can walk down into Val Sadole and to the Baita Monte Cauriol, 3 ½ hours (difficulty E), while the ascent to Forcella Valmaggiore, where you’ll find the Paolo & Nicola bivouac takes about 3 hours (difficulty E).
