Distance 2.9 km
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.
Be sure to bring a camera.
Malga Ritorto is an excellent spot to enjoy a hot beverage or local alpine delicacies.
