After the Micheluzzi Refuge, the path unwinds gently across the green meadows of Val Duron. Passing close to Baita Lino Brach Refuge, keep on walking on a dirt road at the feet of Catinaccio to the south and Sassopiatto to the north.

From Piaz de Ciampedel walk up Strèda de Ruf and Strèda de Salin. Reach the outskirts of the village walking along the brook "Ruf Duron". Once you cross the bridge, the path becomes immediately very steep. Keep the right of the forest road, which is closed to the traffic, and face the hard 50 m uphill stretch (average gradient of 24%). After this first part, the road ascends continuously but more gently until Micheluzzi Refuge. In order to (at least partially) avoid the dust clouds caused by the shuttle in service during the summer, once you reach the restaurant Baita Fraines in the area of "Pozates", leave the forest road and take the path on the left leading in a thick fir wood, which is very steep in some parts. You will reach a clearing equipped with picnic benches and tables. Cross the brook and join the road ascending from Campitello, just below Micheluzzi Refuge.

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.

Tips and hints

The walk is suited to strollers ONLY if you start from Micheluzzi Refuge.

In order to avoid the very steep first part of the walk, you can ascend to the hamlet of "Pian". At a very short distance from Piaz de Ciampedel, right at the connection between Strèda de Salin and Strèda de Sènc Felip e Giacum, turn right and take Strèda de Col to reach the hamlet (as an alternative you can follow the itinerary of Way of the Cross). Cross the ancient tiny village and keep walking on a broad and well-marked dirt road, until you get to a bridge. Cross it and join the road ascending from Campitello.
