Monte Cogne is a top in a strategic position. In this excursion we suggest to start from Malga Vernera, in order to reach the summit walking on the great dorsal between Altopiano di Piné and Valfloriana.

Author’s recommendation

Among the point of interest along the path we point ouf Località Cimatti and the panoramic summit of Monte Cogne.

Destination

Monte Cogne Mountain (La Paleta)

Turn-by-turn directions

From Vernera hut follow the forest southwards that conduces at the small church of the Italin Alpine trooper, for then continuing until Camorè locality (you should encounter some huts). Don't get confused from a forest road that turns left but follow the main road until Camorè (about 1,7Km from the start). Now leave the forest road for a path on the left with indication "Malga Vasoni Alti e Malga Fregasoga" path n° 468; the path continues steady in the spruce wood. Once arrived at some indication that mentions again "Malga Vasoni Alti e Rifugio Tonini" turn left, leaving path 468, for an evident path with "Cimatti e monte Cogne" indication; the sign is attached on a big tree and not on the wooden pole together with the others. Following this path you will shortly get out of the woods, reaching Cimatti's locality. Now, on path n°469 follow "passo Mirafiori e monte Cogne" indications, continue on a pleasant slope until Frattoni mountain and then until Monte Cogne's top. Reaching the summit through the great dorsal between Altopiano di Pinè and Valfloriana is a very exciting experience. Once on the top, we just have to turn 360 degrees on ourselves to admire the hundreds of mountainc that surround us; from the closest, i.e. Fregasoga mountain, Pala delle Buse and Rujoch to the furthest like Marmolada with its magnificent rocky south wall, about 1000 m high, the Ortles-Cevedale group and Brenta grup. The view on the plateau is breathtaking too, with its two lakes that reflect the sky. The way back takes place on the same route.

Public transport

From the Trento bus station, take line B403 towards Montesover (Trento - Pergine - Baselga di Pinè - Montesover) or line B402 (Trento - Nogarè - Baselga di Pinè -Montesover) and get off at Montesover. There is no public transport that connects the town of Montesover with Malga Vernera that has to be reached independently.

Getting there

From the A22 Brenner motorway (from the south exit Trento sud - from the north exit Trento north) and from the Brenner state road 12, continue on the S.S. 47 of the Valsugana for Pergine Valsugana - Padua up to the junction of the Mochena for the Piné plateau, and then transiting on the S.P. 71 towards Lona-Lases and Sover, take the direction of Montesover and once in the town of Montesover, follow the signs for Malga Vernera; from here, after several hairpin bends and about 15 minutes by car, we arrive at Malga Vernera.

Parking

Malga Vernera.

Buongiorno, si tratta di un itinerario di media difficoltà, soprattutto per lo sforzo che richiede nella salita alla cima. La conformazione del terreno non richiede particolari competenze tecniche. Cordiali saluti

Escursione che offre panorami davvero fantastici: si vedono tutte le montagne intorno, fino alle Dolomiti! I sentieri sono bene indicati e sono adatti a persone con poca esperienza nell'escursionismo come noi. Piacevole anche il cambio di tipologia di sentiero: a volte più ripido, altre più lineare in mezzo a dei boschi, altre ancora più semplice su una strada forestale. Consigliato assolutamente se vi trovate in Val di Cembra.
