Author’s recommendation

Seize the opportunity to follow the “Friedrich August” trail, which runs at the feet of the fabulous Sassolungo and Sassopiatto ranges. The name is derived from a traditional belief that the path was created by King Friedrich August himself.

Turn-by-turn directions

Campitello di Fassa – Rifugio Friedrich August.

At Campitello di Fassa, at the entrance to the “Strada de Salin”, in the direction of the beginning of Val Duron, you will notice the SAT signs. Following the directions for trail 529, you walk up a stairway in the direction of “Pian”, “Forcella Rodella” and “Rifugio Des Alpes”.

You climb to beyond the town and reach the hamlet of “Pian”. You cross the hamlet and continue on the meadows above, sticking to trail 529.

When the trail enters the woods and climbs further up, is necessary to pay attention to a fork in the path, at an elevation of about 1610 m, in a place called I Pins. Here you continue along trail 529, avoiding trail 528 on the right hand side.

You gain elevation, crossing the forest. The trail climbs to above Fraines locality.

At an elevation of 1750 m, you avoid turn-off to the left and continue straight along trail 529. You now face a steep and challenging section, which allows you to gain elevation quickly, until you come out beyond the vegetation.

Continuing along the path that travels along the panoramic meadows on the top, you reach the mountain hut.

You return the same way you came, or you can take the Col Rodella ski lift back down.

VARIATIONS:

You can reach Rifugio Friedrich August comfortably on the “Col Rodella” ski lift. From the uphill station you travel down a forest road to Forcella Rodella, and then to the nearby Rifugio Friedrich August.

Or with the walk that starts from Passo Sella - Rifugio Valentini. In this case, you follow the forest road that goes by Rif. Salei and reaches Forcella Rodella. You turn right, and after a short walk you arrive at Rifugio Friedrich August. Climbing time: about 40 minutes - cumulative elevation gain about 150m - About 2.0 Km
