Turn-by-turn directions

We start from Piazza Dolomiti and go through the town centre to the cross Via Trento-Via Crosare: here we turn left (Via Crosare) and left again at the hotel Serena (Via Pradel); after 1,5km, we go left once again, following the indication leading to the rifugi del Brenta. We suggest a short digression to malga Tovre, so that you can enjoy beautiful views of mount Paganella too.
