All the information given in this profile is subject to change or alteration and therefore not always absolutely valid.

For this reason, we accept No responsibility for eventual changes, which may affect the person involved. We strongly advise that weather and/or environmental conditions be checked before departure.
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.
E - Escursionistico (Hiker)
Departure point is the car park at Pozzi Alti (1.884m), reachable by way of an old military dirt road from Stavel in the village of Vermiglio. The 6.2km road is accessible to everybody and there is no need for a permit. If you wish to go on foot, take the SAT 233 which goes to the ex Austrian-Hungarian military fort (at one time used to defend Tonale) Forte Pozzi Alti (1h 30min). From the car park take the SAT 233 towards the dug-out tunnel in the rocks and some channels until crossing the SAT 206 which goes straight up to Stavel. Continue in the direction of Rifugio Stavel F. Denza (2.298m) which can be found directly below the north wall of the Cima Presanella (3.558m), the highest mountain in Trentino. The rifugio is of great historical interest concerning the First World War, and in particular the small wooden church.
