Leave Fontanazzo (the southern part of the village) along the old road (path no. 577) which soon enters the trees. You meet a forest road that you follow on the left. At a sharp bend from the left joins the forest road coming from Mazzin. Here begins a fairly steep climb.Soon after a religious shrine the valley levels out and you will come to the first huts at Dona. These are followed by another steep climb to get to the upper meadows. Here there are numerous wooden buildings and the Dona refuge. You will also join up with the path no. 580 from Mazzin, which goes on to the Antermoia refuge. Follow this path across the Camerloi pastures, but leave it to the right to go up to the Pas de le Ciaréjoles (2,282 m; 2 hrs 45). The path no. 578 down to the Val Duron runs over black volcanic rocks, and takes you down to a large pasture called Ciamp de Grévena. Keep going down through the alder wood to the valley floor (45 mins; 3 hrs 30). Turn right at the bottom towards the Baita da Lino Brach and the Micheluzzi refuge (1,850 m) (45 mins; 4 hrs 15). Keep going downhill to Campitello (Ciampedèl) (45 mins; 5 hrs).

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
