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.

From Alba di Canazei (car parks are near the Ciampac cableway), you take path no. 602 for Val Contrin.
The itinerary ends in Val Contrin. Descent to Alba di Canazei is on foot (path no. 602). Eventual pay shuttle bus service from Baita Locia Contrin Refuge to Alba di Canazei.
Description path 3/n: we suggest that this long and demanding hike be divided into two stages with overnight stay at the Falier Refuge. In this manner it is possible to climb up to the Ombretta eastern summit at 3,009 m, that rises at the centre of an extraordinary circular panorama. From Alba di Canazei, 1,517 m the route climbs up to the Contrin Refuge at 2,016 m (path no. 602; 2 hrs). Behind the refuge, turn right onto trail no. 607. After passing a stream, the route travels the long diagonal that reaches the top of the rocky bank of the "Lastè de Contrin" and leads to a plateau. Here go left (to the right starts trail no. 609 for "Pasché" Pass) up the slopes of glacier-rounded rocks that divide two small gorges. Continue walking along the ridge of the scree beds that line the base of majestic cliffs. Keep to the right along the bottom of the gorge until you reach a big rock plate. At this point abandon trail no. 607 and take left onto trail no. 612. After a flat section, go up two sharp bends leading through the scree beds coming down from the Vernale and then onto the long diagonal that ends at Ombrettola Pass at 2,861 m (3 hrs; 5 hrs). If you resist the short-cuts and keep to the path, the descent through the scree beds on the opposite slope shouldn’t be a problem. After this it is easy to walk through the meadows further down and then zig-zag through the low alder wood to reach a flat section that leads to the Falier Refuge at 2,074 m (1 hour 15; 6 hrs 15). You can spend the nigth here (compulsory reservation). Close to the refuge there is trail no. 610 that leads to Ombretta Pass at 2,706 m. The narrow bends at the beginning then widen out into the easily travelled war pathway, followed by a demanding final section through the debris near the summit (2 hrs; 8 hrs 15). To reach the Ombretta summit, go left along a path of black lavic rock, passing by the Dal Bianco bivouac, and then climb up on the partially equipped ridge (Via Ferrata d’Ombretta - Vernale). Walk through into a detrital gorge and climb up the rather difficult slope to the crest. Follow the crest to the left until you reach the iron cross erected on the peak (1 hr 45 to go and return to be added to the hours indicated for the second half of the tour). From there, descend into Val Rosalìa on the easy trail that runs along the right slope of the gorge. With a tight serpentine, overcome a steep slope that eventually levels out and cross lovely flower-strewn meadows to the Contrin Refuge at 2,016 m (1 hr; 9 hrs 15) and from there down to Alba di Canazei at 1,517 m (1 hr 15;10 hrs 30).
