An enjoyable walk in the heart of the Pejo3000 ski area. The uphill part is made easier by the ski lifts, which can also be used for the trip back down if liked. From the Scoiattolo (squirrel) Mountain Refuge you walk to Malga Saline, overlooking the start of Val de la Mare, and then to Doss dei Cembri.


 This route is part of the Uno Di Un Milione project. Here, through the QR codes on the original water bottles and the dedicated app, you can take part in an experience of art, relation and participation that will help you explore the water running through Val di Sole, discovering how the community in this valley has creatively imagined its own vision of protection for the environment and future generations.

Safety information

The 10 rules for walking in the mountains:
  1. the feasibility of routes in a mountain environment is closely linked to the contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, changes in the environment and the weather conditions. For this reason, make sure you are well informed about the route and conditions before setting out. You can do this by contacting your nearest Information Office;
  2. if you expect to reach a malga or mountain refuge, make sure that this will be open and, if you intend to stop to eat or sleep, call beforehand to book;
  3. leave information about your route with someone and always take your mobile phone with you;
  4. in the event of an accident, call 112;
  5. never leave litter in the mountains and, if possible, avoid leaving your rubbish at mountain refuges or malgas that you visit;
  6. if you spot wild animals along the way, we invite you to stay on the path, not go too near, not shout and to keep your dog on a lead, to stop it instinctively chasing and scaring the animal;
  7. face masks must also be worn in the mountains;
  8. keep a distance of at least 2 metres between you and other people;
  9. avoid sharing personal effects, instruments and water bottles with other people;
  10. take hand sanitiser with you and frequently disinfect your hands and surfaces.

Take the Pejo Fonti-Tarlenta cable car to Tarlenta and, below the Scoiattolo Mountain Refuge pick up trail 127, followed by a stretch along a forest road, until you come to Malga Saline (2,089 m asl). From the farmhouse, set out along trail 105, which will bring you to Doss dei Cembri Mountain Refuge, after also covering a stretch of unmade track on the ski slope.

You can follow the same route in reverse for the return journey or, if you prefer, take the Doss dei Cembri chairlift and then the cable car.
