Mount Cogne is a peak in a strategic position. In this excursion, the departure from malga Vernera is proposed in order to walk along the great watershed ridge between the Pinè Plateau and Valfloriana for the summit arrival.

Author’s recommendation

Safety information

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.

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.

Destination

Monte Cogne Mountain (La Paleta)

Turn-by-turn directions

From Malga Vernera, follow the obvious forest road in a southerly direction that leads to the alpine chapel and then continues to Camorè (you should encounter some huts). Do not be misled by a forest road turning left, but follow the main one to Camorè (approx. 1.7 km from the start). Now leave the forest road for a path on the left with signs for "Malga Vasoni Alti and Malga Fregasoga" path number 468; the path continues steadily through the spruce forest. When you come to signs for "Malga Vasoni Alti and Rifugio Tonini" turn left, leaving path 468, onto an obvious path with signs for "Cimatti and Monte Cogne"; the sign is attached to a large tree and not on the wooden pole with the others. Following this path, we soon reach Cimatti outside the forest. Now, on path no. 469 and with signs for "Mirafiori pass and Monte Cogne", we continue on a pleasant slope to Monte Frattoni and then to the summit of Monte Cogne. The arrival at the summit via the large ridge that acts as a watershed between the Piné plateau and Valfloriana is very exciting. Having reached the summit, all we have to do is turn around 360 degrees to admire the hundreds of mountains that surround us; from the closest ones, such as Mount Fregasoga, Pala delle Buse and Rujoch, to the more distant ones such as the Marmolada with its magnificent south face, rocky and up to 1,000 metres high, the Ortles-Cevedale group and the Brenta group. Also special is the view of the plateau, with its two lakes reflecting the sky. The return journey is along the same route as the outward journey.

From the Trento bus station, take line B403 towards Montesover (Trento - Pergine - Baselga di Pinè - Montesover) or line B402 (Trento - Nogarè - Baselga di Pinè -Montesover) and get off at Montesover. There is no public transport that connects the town of Montesover with Malga Vernera that has to be reached independently.

Getting there

From the A22 Brenner motorway (from the south exit Trento sud - from the north exit Trento north) and from the Brenner state road 12, continue on the S.S. 47 of the Valsugana for Pergine Valsugana - Padua up to the junction of the Mochena for the Piné plateau, and then transiting on the S.P. 71 towards Lona-Lases and Sover, take the direction of Montesover and once in the town of Montesover, follow the signs for Malga Vernera; from here, after several hairpin bends and about 15 minutes by car, we arrive at Malga Vernera.
