A hike of intermediate difficulty along a route that goes from town (altitude: 1,550 m / 5,085 ft) up to an incredible vista point on Monte Spinale (altitude: 2,100 m / 6,890 ft) looking out over the Adamello-Presanella group.
Distance 4.1 km
Highest point2,086 m
Lowest point1,519 m
An itinerary of intermediate difficulty that takes you quickly through the forest around town up to the alpine pasture lands of Monte Spinale. The central positioning of Monte Spinale makes it the perfect spot to enjoy a full 360° view out over the World Heritage Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello and Presanella glaciers. The fields between Malga Fevri and Monte Spinale are the perfect spot to get some sun and have a picnic. Once at the top, we recommend taking a break at the luxurious Chalet Fiat. Numerous itineraries start from here, such as the crossing towards Graffer, and there are various options for returning back down to town, including the lift system.
Just after the switchback before the malga, take the detour to the south known as Giro al Doss, which features an amazing view of Doss and the Rendena Valley.
