Scenic hike through the Val Duron and along the Friedrich August Trail

The Saxon King Friedrich August III was an enthusiastic hiker and mountaineer who undertook numerous tours in the vicinity of his residence in Siusi allo Sciliar. The high-altitude trail named after him was opened in 1911 and has enjoyed great popularity ever since. The hike from Campitello di Fassa along below the Sassolungo group offers beautiful views and several places to stop for refreshments. The trail climbs steadily through the Val Duron to the Plattkofel hut. On the way we meet Scottish highland cattle and always have a good view of our path. Afterwards, the trail is quite flat along the famous Friedrich-August-Weg. On the south side of the Sassolungo massif we hike without any major technical difficulties and with a great view to the Friedrich-August-Hütte.
