Hikes, paths and itineraries on the high mountain in Trentino’s Dolomites
Hiking is the queen of summer activities in Val di Fassa. Its paths’ network (signaled in red and white) is really dense and allows to explore every corner of the valley. You can choose both easy walks surrounded by nature and challenging itineraries that reach the summits of the "Monti Pallidi" (Pale Mountains). The routes suggested here, subdivided by typology, difference of level and difficulty level, satisfy all the hikers, from expert mountaineers to families with children. We disclaim legal responsibilities for contingent damages or accidents that may occur along the suggested paths. Suggested time for hiking: from June to the beginning of October. Have a look to the paths’ and refuges’ map. Check out also: rules for safety hiking in the mountains.

The forgotten path
The itinerary leaves from the midway station of the Lusia cabin lift (1,820 m). Valbona is reached by lifts (from Moena by car or public transport to "Ronchi", about 1,5 km. Convenient and ample parking at the valley station of the lifts).
You return by the same route, by taking the cabin lift from "Valbona", or by going down the forest road that leads to the valley station of the cabin lift in "Ronchi". The Chalet Valbona and La Rezila Refuge are the only refreshment places in the area. The path is not suited for strollers.
Description path 1/a: this easy path, especially suitable for families with children, tells stories and curiosities about the woods around Alpe Lusia, inviting guests to observe nature with different eyes, in the whole respect of the dolomitic enviroment. It is a little open-air natural museum, all to discover. Entrance is free: the only actors are man and nature. Illustrative panels accompany the visitors along the whole track. The path starts from "Valbona" (reachable from "Ronchi"-Moena by cabin lift, first stop). From the intermediate station of the Lusia cabin lift, refreshment at the restaurant Chalet Valbona, go on the flat towards Malga Pozza (dairy). Where the dirt road begins to climb, go down to the left onto the pastures and then into the wood. Then the path flattens out to reach the La Rezila Refuge (1,761 m) on the edge of a wide grassy clearing. You then need to walk uphill behind the building following the fence. You will reach a new construction and a fork. Path no. 623, to the right, leads to Lusia Pass, while path no. 625 crosses the stream which comes down from the pass. You will come to the "Colvere".
The path is not suited for strollers.
Just after the La Rezila Refuge, along the path no. 625 towards "Colvere", begins a nice "forest bathing" staged path, along which it is possible to experience the nature through every sense. First step: "tree hugging", the Celtic practice of hugging the trees to absorb their beneficial properties, a real green cure against the daily stress. In particular, spruces helps to heal the fractures and reduce the swelling. Second step: barefoot on the grass, on the leaves, on musk, barks and stones. This kind of walking has a positive incidence on the humour and on the sleeping, but it also helps to improve the postures, the metabolism and the balance. Third step: Kneipp therapy. Plunge your feet in a stream to benefit of the curative power of fresh and pure high mountain water.
Just before reaching the municipal hut at "Colvere", you will clearly see the posts of the Austrian gunners of the First World War, placed in reinforced concrete structures. A trenched path enters the wood and, proceeding downhill, leads to the observatory: a net of tunnels dug into the rock, equipped with windows and slots to keep at gunpoint the San Pellegrino pass, starting point of the Italian front. The use of an electric torch to visit the galleries as well as suitable clothes and shoes are highly recommended. In summertime it is also possible to take part in guided excursions.
