Arrival

A large boulder at the end of the parking lot marks the start of the itinerary. After a section through pine trees (take care right at the end) the route continues nicely in slight descent along the mule path constructed by the Alpini during the First World War. Walk along this path no. 402 beneath the base of the Torri del Falzarego and Col dei Bos, past buildings and field hospitals dating back to the Great War. Do not miss out on the fantastic Torri del Falzarego: their 250m sheer vertical faces are compact and ideal for rock climbing in summer. Looking up high you will almost definitely make out some chamois feeding on these south facing slopes, as the snow melts early on in the season. At the fork continue to descend instead taking path no. 412 up left to the Col dei Bòs saddle. Our path no. 402 descends first to "Casòn de Ròzes" and then finishes at the Passo Falzarego road.
