This is a circular path that connects different alpine huts on the Brocon Pass.
This trekking is an ancient route used since 1900 by the shepherds that lived in the huts for the summer season because they took the cows of the locals to the mountain pasture.
Pay attention to the path signs.
We advice to use also a map.
