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.

Turn-by-turn directions

Difficulty E: Excursionistic Route

Departing from Agritur Malga Arpaco, next to Passo Brocon, the walk requires to go down following the directions. From the pasturelands, a suggestive area is crossed with particular rocks arrangements, and then within a mixed wood of beeches and firs, to reach Malga Valorsella. Always walking in the wood, Malga Valarica di Sotto is reached. From here, the path goes uphill surrounded by glades up to Malga Valarica di Sopra, which is an exhibition site used in the past for art exhibitions. In autumn, the natural amphitheatre in the proximity of Malga Valarica di Sopra, becomes a key passing point for migratory birds. The trail ends on the forest route up to the starting point.

L'unica aperta è la malga Arpaco, all'inizio del percorso ad anello. Al momento su Google Maps la vedo contrassegnata come "Chiusa temporaneamente", meglio telefonare.
