The trekking passes through a suggestive beech-wood and a meadow where you find Malga Zocchi. From the top of Mount Testo, the mountain that is behind Malga Zocchi, when the weather is fine you can see Mount Pasubio, the Italian and Austro-Hungarian Dente, Cima Palon, the Piccole  Dolomiti, Cima Levante, Mount Zugna and also far away Mount Altissimo and the chain of Mount Telegrafo which is between the Garda Lake and the Adige Valley. Just below the top of Mount Testo, the Austro-Hungarians army built a series of galleries and refuges which have been restored by SAT of Rovereto and are very interesting to be visited.

Author’s recommendation

Near Bocchetta Foxi, you could meet chamois if you respect the natural silence of that place.

Percorso fantastico! Già la sola parte fino alla malga zocchi e alla bocchetta del foxi valgono l'intera salita. Ma la parte più intensa e mozzafiato è raggiungere la cima del monte Testo, da cui la vista degli altri monti e sulla vallata è da capogiro! Semplicemente fantastica! La discesa attraverso la trincea austroungarica è bella, anche se poco segnalata. Un piccolo appunto per la discesa: nella traccia gpx il sentiero 102A non è segnato bene, e nella cartina la traccia giusta è il tracciato tratteggiato (comunque, unico sentiero in discesa fino ad un bivio in cui la corretta direzione è segnalata). La discesa dopo il rifugio è bella anche se per la sterrata del Pasubio, un pochino monotona. Per questo è bene fare il tracciato consigliato dal gpx che taglia alcuni punti con sentieri, anche se corti, in mezzo ai boschi.

Bel percorso da fare in questo periodo autunnuale, con i boschi colorati di giallo e rosso; tantissimi i percorsi che partono dal rifugio Lancia, di varie difficoltà, dal semplice all'impegnativo; consigliatissimo!
