An historic route arising from the First World War. A very interesting route from a panoramic point of view, its length running past old trenches, steel ropes and hanging bridges. This trail should be undertaken with the correct mountain equipment and physical preparation and training.

Author’s recommendation

You can admire the surrounding masses like Adamello, the Presanella and Ortles-Cevedale groups, on a clear day the Bernina and the Brenta Dolomites.

Safety information

Lying completely to the west, this route can often be cloudy or icy. Ice rampons could be useful: for this reason it is preferable that it be taken on during the summer period. It is important that you have no fear of heights. Entrust the professionalism of the Val di Sole Alpine Guides for help and advice.

  • Choose a route suitable for your capability and pre-preparation.
  • Leave information of your itinerary and approximate return time.
  • Pay attention to the signs and indications found on the way.
  • Do not hesitate to return if necessary.
  • In the case of accident or emergency, call 118.

All the information given in this profile is subject to change or alteration and therefore not always absolutely valid. It is not possible to completely avoid inaccuracies due to the very rapid changes in weather or environmental conditions, which can verify themselves without warning. For this reason, we accept No responsibility for eventual changes, which may affect the person involved.  We strongly advise that weather and/or environmental conditions be checked before departure.

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.

Departure from Cabinovia Paradiso car park in Tonale. From here take the cable-car to Passo Paradiso (2.585m). A dirt road then leads to Lago del Monticello, where on the right is the SAT 44 which, after passing a number of rocky jumps arrives at Passo del Castellaccio (2.936m) where the «Via Ferrata» begins. Wearing the correct mountain clothing and equipment hitch up to the first ropes and after a walk on semi-level terrain you will arrive at a tunnel dug out of the rocks, continuing for a few metres you will see 2 metal bridges which are respectively 75m and 55m long. Alternatively, the bridges can be avoided by using the tunnel itself, which is 67m long.

From here the route continues on a slight slope and then uphill until reaching the highest point, il «Corno di Lagoscuro» (3.160m), where you can find the «Capanna Lagoscuro» an unmanned rifugio open only occasionally. Now the route descends to Passo Lagoscuro (2.970m) where the « Via ferrata» ends. During the Great War this was the site of a military village, of which some remains can still be seen. From here, the road will take you to SAT 209 which rises to Passo Presena (2.997m), and the return to Passo Tonale by way of the cable-car.
