An excursion of intermediate difficulty along forestry roads and trails through a wooded area to Milegna. Here, there is a vast pastureland overlooking the entire Rendena Valley to the south and on to the southernmost foothills of the Alps. The truly stunning panorama extends from the Brenta Dolomites to the east to the Adamello mountain range to the west. The itinerary continues to the north until you reach Malga Ritorto. Thanks to its orientation, this is a particularly great spot to enjoy many hours of sun, from early morning till late into the afternoon.

Author’s recommendation

Be sure to bring a camera.

Malga Ritorto is an excellent spot to enjoy a hot beverage or local alpine delicacies.

Safety information

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. In the event of fresh snow, snowshoes are also recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low. As you might imagine, the accessibility of these mountain trails depends entirely on the conditions found at any given time, such as the weather and other natural and environmental conditions. Therefore, before you set out, you should check the status of the trail by contacting alpine guides, lodge operators, or the local tourist office or park information office.
