Destination

Molveno - via Lungolago

Turn-by-turn directions

From Molveno you easily reach Andalo (Life Park) and there you begin the "real" trail running; you go to Malga Spora into the real wilderness of the northern Brenta Dolomites, before reaching Passo Grosté. Here you go down to rifugio Graffer, then continuing to rifugio Tuckett and down to Sella del Fridolin. At the end of the descent, you go right to rifugio Brentei and then upwards to Bocca di Brenta, the highest point of the trail. From Bocca di Brenta you go down to rifugio Pedrotti and through the valley to rifugio Selvata first and then to rifugio Croz dell'Altissimo. You're almost at the end of the tour: you go down to Molveno through the wild Val delle Seghe.
