An itinerary of intermediate difficulty, but without an excessive elevation gain, through the Brenta Valley in the heart of the Brenta Dolomites.
Distance 9.1 km
A mostly flat excursion that alternates between snowy trails and forestry roads through a forest of lovely European silver fir trees interspersed with open areas, clearings, and alpine farmhouses. The itinerary runs alongside crystal-clear streams of the Brenta Valley to a beautiful clearing at Malga Brenta Bassa, where there is a stunning view of the Dolomites and the west face of Crozzon di Brenta overlooking the valley.
Be sure to bring a camera.

Safety informationExperience 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.
