Departure point is the Malgamare car park, which can be reached by means of a narrow asphalted road, from Cogolo di Peio. From here take the SAT 102 which runs alongside Malga Mare (2.301m), then a climb though the pine woods where there is a panoramic view of the plain known as Pian Venezia (Stelvio National Park). Another spectacular landscape of the snow covered peaks of Cevedale and the underlying vallies formed by the glaciers, continuing along the path Rifugio G. Larcher (2.608m) can be found at the summit of a rocky spur.
From the rifugio, ideally positioned to view this glacial environment, follow the SAT 104 until reaching a small pass (2.751m) and then descend in to a vast plain where there are numerous small lakes formed by the glaciers. From here, you will reach the characteristic Lago delle Marmotte (2.705m). Leaving the lake, follow the SAT 123 along an even and flat trail which passes close to Lago Lungo and which reaches the edge of the small Lago Nero, not far from the artificial basin Careser (2.603m). Follow the walls of the dam to the guard’s buildings. From here, the SAT 123 descends and there are a series of sharp bends. Continue in a zigzag fashion through some lovely woodland. By making a brief diversion, it is possible to reach the tiny Lago delle Lame (2.275m). Going back on to the path descend until reaching the Malgamare car park.
