The walk to Rifugio Tuckett allows you to enter the heart of the Brenta Dolomites, in an extraordinary natural landscape.

Author’s recommendation

In the first part of the walk, don’t miss the opportunity to admire the tall pinnacles of Cima Falckner, Castello dei Massodi, and Castelletto, with their vertical north faces. At the mountain hut, you must take a picture with the majestic pillar of Cima Massari and the Hanging Serac of Cima Brenta in the background.

Safety information

In the middle section of the trail, pay attention to the large boulders that the path winds around and that make the walk harder.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Equipment

Hiking boots/shoes, raincoat, a change of clothes. Telescopic hiking sticks are useful.

Turn-by-turn directions

Here we suggest the route that leads to the mountain hut starting from Passo Grostè, which you can reach on the ski lift facility that goes by the same name.

From the uphill station of Grostè Cableway - Rifugio Stoppani (2440 m), you head out, following trail 316 (directions for Rifugio Tuckett).

The route travels down towards the small pass located above the Corna Rossa, where you cross trail 331.

You continue along trail 316, now between large and typical Dolomitic boulders. Continuing along the trail, you walk below the impressive “Torrione di Vallesinella” and, with a brief climb, you walk beneath the compact western face of the Castelletto Inferiore di Vallesinella.

In this way, you come to Rifugio F.F. Tuckett (2270m). From here, you can return the way you came, or you can get to the bottom following trail 317, which leads to Vallesinella, passing by RIfugio Casinei (1850m). In the latter case, from Vallesinella you return to the Fortini parking area via shuttle bus or taxi.

Getting there

On road SS239, go to the north of Madonna di Campiglio between Passo Campo Carlo Magno and the town, near the beginning of the Cabinovia Grostè facilities. Using this ski lift, go to the uphill station of the Cabinovia Grostè - Rifugio Stoppani (2440 m).

Parking

Ample parking at the Fortini - Passo Grostè ski lift facility. Pay parking.
