Author’s recommendation

A very scenic ring route taking in the entire Lagorai chain and all of the lower Val di Fiemme as far as the Val d’Adige. From the summit of Corno Bianco there are views over the extraordinary Bletterbach gorge, a veritable geological treasure showing us the story of the evolution of the earth. This gorge is the result of disintegration and erosion. From the time of the Ice Age (about 15,000 years ago) through the various geological eras, the Bletterbach/Rio delle Foglie has cut a route 8 km long and 400 metres deep.

Destination

Corno Nero and Corno Bianco

Turn-by-turn directions

Trail No 573 starts from just behind the Hotel Schwarzhorn in the Passo Oclini (1989 m), first rising steeply and then continuing on a more even scenic route along the ridge to the summit of the Corno Nero (2491 m).

From the summit  take trail No 502, with its spectacular route along the crest, to Monte Palone, and then descend to the Baito di Cugola (1900 m). A brief ascent to the right leads to the Passo Cugola.

From here take trail No 502 in the direction of Malga Cugola Bassa (Alpine dairy). A good forest road (with markings for trail No 502), leads from the malga first over even and then slightly rising ground as far as Malga Gurndin (1952 m).

From here there are two options: return to the Passo Oclini on the easy unsurfaced road to the right (30 minutes), or turn left on this same track after 100 metres and take trail H, following directions for the Corno Bianco, and continue along this path to the summit of the mountain (2317 m).

From the top of the Corno Bianco, backtrack down the route taken on the way up for a time and then branch left, still on trail H, descending directly to the Passo Oclini (1 hour 30 minutes from Malga Gurndin).

Wir haben die Tour nur bis zum Gipfel des Weißhorns gemacht. Es war eine kurze Strecke, jedoch sehr steil bis oben. Vom Gipfel aus hat mein ein überragendes Panorama auf die Dolomitenberge. Wahnsinn! Wir werden die Strecke auf jeden Fall nochmal gehen!
