Monte Croce is a must for the trekking lovers, a mountain symbol for Altopiano di Pinè that with his 2490m overhangs for all the other tops. It'a a mountain to "woo" and frequenting in the right period: for the trekking the right season it's the summer but the itinerary it's very beautiful in winter too, to practice with ski mountaineering. 

Author’s recommendation

The pivotal point of interest of this excursion are the Austrian barracks of the Great War, with considerable importance cultural-historical.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the started point (read "how to get there" section") take the forest road on the left in the forest road with "malga Fregasoga-Scalet pass” with path number 407. Always with great signage, continue on a path in the woods until "ponte dei vasoni" locality. Attenction, in this indications track, it is not specified Monte Croce but Scalet pass. Keeping on 407 path, that runs along the orographic right of Rio Brusago, continue in the wood in an quiet environment up to the Fregasoga hut. Now, with "Caserine hut and Scalet pass" indication, take a beautiful cobbled street with a pleasant slope takes us to the large village with a view on our top, the Monte Croce. After the es Caserine hut, the street transform in a path that through lawn with rare vegetation it takes us to Scalet pass; to win the to win the steep jump and get to the pass, the path help us for some zig-zag. Arriving at the pass, after having tested the view on the Val dei Mocheni top, you walk there to the top, and in 40 minutes about you are at 2490 meters altitude of Monte Croce. The view sweeps in all directions: the Marmolada, the Sella group, D'Asta top, the Brenta group and Ortles-Cevedale, Bondone and Rujoch. In short time ypu return at Scalet pass and here you can choose between two options of descent: the first it's the same of the climb, recommended to those who have not a sufficient energy reserve or for who have limited time. The other, recommended by me it's explained later. From the pass follow the directions for "pass of val mattio and Austriac barracks of the great War" with n° 460A path. In short you arrived at the Austriac barracks of the Great War and at the trenches; the whole it has been beautifully refurbished and is highly recommended to visit, also on the inside (coordinate N46°9’38,7 E11°22’48,7). The structure it can be helpful also in case of bad weather. You continue in direction of "pass of val mattio" always on marked path and good walkable. Arriving at the pass follow the indication for Tonini shelter on path n° 340. Arriving at "busona di val mattio" always follow a good path with a wild charachter and a step on a wooden staircase, you arrived on the dorsal of Rujoch mountain, and from here in 20 minutes you arrived at the remain of Tonini shelter, destroyed in a fire in december 2016. From here on 443 path and indication forBrusago you go down for a steep path in the wood until arriving at the forest road that it conduce, following in north-west direction, at Sprugio bassa (low) hut; then continue always on a forest road, and then arriving at the started point.

Equipment

Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What you should have in your rucksack:

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views.
