This is a suggestive path on the footsteps of the First World War, where it is possible to see different remains of foxholes and galleries of the Austro-Hungarian line. From "Le Cune", following the ski slope, descend along path no. 614, towards Lusia Pass up to the hut with the same name.

From Lusia Pass take path no. 633. Ascend through the grassy terraces at the edge of "Lasté" ski slope, alternating easy stretches with steeper sections, up to the mountain station of the ski lift (closed in the summer). On flat ground turn right and reach the cabins of "Lasté" (2,339 m). Follow the trace of a military mule track on cobblestones, which goes up along the southern porphyry balcony of "Cima Lasté" and, after a few turns, leads to "La Trincea" at 2,428 m of altitude. From this placement, where the remains of First World War’s fortifications can be seen, you overlook the solitary basin of "Lusia" lakes, dominated by "Grònton’s" porphyry ridge on the left. The path descends towards the first pond, where Sandro Redolf bivouac stands. Circumvent the lake and ascend through the pastures, at the edge of "Rif de Lujia" stream, reaching the second lake and then "Sforcela de Boce" (Bocche), end point of "Grònton" via ferrata. From the saddle, where you can see a precarious shelter, the path climbs steeply through the screes of "Cima Bocche’s" south-western ridge and, passing by many trenches, you’ll reach the flat and panoramic peak. Descend along path no. 626 on a wide, rocky ridge up to Renato Jellici bivouac, in whose vicinity you can see the ruins of a military village. Along sheltered walkways, continue descending up to "Bocche" lake. Move along its eastern side and descend to the grassy terrace where "Bait de le Vedèle" is located. The military mule track allows to quickly lose altitude. At the junction with path no. 623 keep right, popping up nearby "Malga Bocche" (dairy). Follow the handy rut (trail sign no. 623) that, touching "Malga Canvere", goes back to Lusia Pass. 

Author’s recommendation

The refuges Passo Lusia, Malga Bocche and La Rezila are the only refreshment points along the route. It can be tricky to find your way at the top with bad weather.
