From Mendola Pass to Mount Roen Peak through Malga Smarano
A classic itinerary that proves popular among hikers in the Val di Non and the Caldaro area whatever the season. It can be shortened by climbing up the first part up to Mezzavia Refuge in the chairlift!
<p>The itinerary snakes its way along trail SAT 500 starting off at Mendola Pass. The trail begins as a country road and then becomes narrower and steeper to reach Mezzavia Refuge. The trail continues in an alternation of steeper sections and parts with less of a gradient to the clearing where Malga di Romeno lies. The final part to reach the summit of Mount Roen corresponds to the steepest section but the spectacular view from the peak will be well worth the effort.</p>
<p>The return to Malga di Romeno suggested does not match the outward leg but it descends along the Roen prairies to Malga Smarano and then links up with Malga di Romeno along the shady and flat trail 528/A.</p>
