Walk into the woods between First World War trenches and tunnels to a breathtaking panoramic point.
Distance 1.4 km

An interesting way to enjoy Valsugana from a new and different point of view. During WWI it has worked as a strategic observation point; now, thanks to a wise and well-done requalification, it is possible to admire again all the work the soldiers have done more than 100 years ago.
Watching the sunset from here is just breathtaking!

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
This is a short and educative excursion, perfect for everyone; it combines beautiful views with information about the events that devasted the valley during First World War.
Right behind the playground and the swings by the refuge, starts a path that leads to a viewpoint; on the sidewalk it is still possible to see trenches and tunnels used by the soldiers. Once at the belvedere, the path keeps going direction north, circumventing the refuge clockwise.
Arrived on the asphalted road, turn right to get back to Rifugio Monte Lefre.
