Author’s recommendation

Just before reaching Rifugio Baita Cuz, on the left (on the way up), you will find signs leading to the beautiful “Punto Panoramico Maerins” [Maerins Panoramic Point], which you reach after a very short detour. Don’t miss it.

Turn-by-turn directions

Just downhill from the parking lot in Sauch, you can find the trail marked “Sot i Maerins”. You take the trail and climb, quickly gaining elevation, until you reach a meadow where there is a branch in the trail at 1820 m asl.

Here, you climb to the left and enter the woods. The trail climbs quite steeply, and then turns hard to the west, coming out of the vegetation.

Following the well-marked track, you reach the mountain hut, but not before taking the detour to Punto Panoramico Maerins, with a truly sensational view.

To return, you follow the same route backwards.

VARIATIONS

You also can reach the mountain hut with a short walk from the Pozza-Baffaure ski lift facility.

Getting there

Road SS48 delle Dolomiti to Pozza di Fassa, where you take the road to Val San Nicolò (follow directions). You follow this road until you reach Ristorante Malga Crocefisso. You continue along the paved road to the left and climb up to Sauch, where you find the parking area.

Parking

Parking area in Sauch locality - Val San Nicolò (1720m).
