Leave Campitello by way of Strèda de Morandin and Strèda de Col da Faé, and you will quickly get to the meadows above the village. The going is easy with long flat stretches and brief climbs. Next you will go into the forest at the feet of a mountain called Ponjin. The climb becomes steeper but there are still flat sections where you can get your breath back. You will pass near a grassy clearing known as Pra Molin, and then you reach a little plateau with a sheer drop down to the Val Duron. Keep going through the stone pine woods until you get to another meadow called Ciampié. Next you go down fairly steeply to the Ruf de Duron and then the Micheluzzi refuge (2 hrs 30). To go back to Campitello there is a dirt road all the way down, but unfortunately it is open to limited traffic. If you want to avoid some of this you can cross back over the stream and take to the left the path which runs along the right bank. There are picnic tables along the flatter upper part, and then the path goes steeply down to the area called Pozates with the restaurant Baita Fraines (about half way between the Micheluzzi refuge and the village) (45 mins; 3 hrs 15).

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
