Passo Rolle – Pian dei Casoni – Val Venegia
Coming from San Martino di Castrozza, before arriving at Passo Rolle (1.980 m), stop at the car park of the old Segantini chairlift. From this car park, continue by foot for about 40 minutes along a gentle path running through pastures, until reaching the Segantini mountain hut at Passo della Costazza (2.170 m). About halfway you will find the Capanna Cervino (bar and restaurant). From July to mid September it is also possible to make use of the shuttle bus (at a charge) which in just a few minutes reaches this destination.
Having reached Passo della Costazza, the view over the entire northern range of the Pale will leave you breathless; the Cimon rises majestically, the Alta Val Venegia opens up before us. Follow the dirt road which descends in hairpin bends along the valley.
With a gentle walk through places of extraordinary beauty, you reach the “Campigol della Vezzana" (about 1.920 m), where fields, springs, flowers and enormous Dolomite walls create a natural scenery, unique worldwide. Continue until you enter into the woods and in a short time you will reach Malga Venegiota (1.824 m), with bar and restaurant. Continue descending through woods and pastures until arriving at the car park at the bottom of the valley (1.760 m circa), nearby Malga Venegia (1.778 m), with bar and restaurant. From here, using the park shuttle bus (from June to September) you return back to the starting point. Before leaving check running and times of the trips on the Parks board.
