FONTANAZZO - VAL DI DONA - VAL DURON - CAMPITELLO
Excursions in the side valleys
Leave Fontanazzo (the southern part of the village) along the old road (path no. 577) which soon enters the trees. You meet a forest road that you follow on the left. At a sharp bend from the left joins the forest road coming from Mazzin. Here begins a fairly steep climb.Soon after a religious shrine the valley levels out and you will come to the first huts at Dona. These are followed by another steep climb to get to the upper meadows. Here there are numerous wooden buildings and the Dona refuge. You will also join up with the path no. 580 from Mazzin, which goes on to the Antermoia refuge. Follow this path across the Camerloi pastures, but leave it to the right to go up to the Pas de le Ciaréjoles (2,282 m; 2 hrs 45). The path no. 578 down to the Val Duron runs over black volcanic rocks, and takes you down to a large pasture called Ciamp de Grévena. Keep going down through the alder wood to the valley floor (45 mins; 3 hrs 30). Turn right at the bottom towards the Baita da Lino Brach and the Micheluzzi refuge (1,850 m) (45 mins; 4 hrs 15). Keep going downhill to Campitello (Ciampedèl) (45 mins; 5 hrs).
