This short excursion to the suggestive Lakes of Colbricon crosses through the thick pine forest that cloaks the north-facing slope of the Colbricon and Cavallazza mountains. The trail is perfectly signposted and well beaten. On the shore of the second lake is the beautifully sited Rifugio Colbricon, an obvious place in which to stop and rest.

The enchanting mountain lakes are also exceptional panoramic points, offering sweeping views of the Cima Bocche Group and the Pala Group.

Rifugio Laghi di Colbricon

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point is at the Malga Rolle (1918m-6923ft), just past the Rolle Pass, arriving from San Martino di Castrozza. Parking is free, but there are not many spaces.The start of the path is about one hundred metres below the main road near the Chalet la Baita. The beginning of the trail is a gentle, steady uphill climb which is not too difficult, in the middle of a scented wood.The wide, well-trodden mule track (which, however, is not suitable for pushchairs because of all the tree roots and rocky sections) continues uphill until the trees begin to thin out. Here, the first of the two lakes appears on the right (the so-called “low” lake, 1909m-6263ft). Your destination of the lovely plateau with the other lake (1922m-6306ft) and the Rifugio Colbricon (1927m-6322ft) are not far away.The Colbricon lakes are a great place for young children: the perfect location for a picnic in the fields or a pleasant lunch at the Rifugio Colbricon (1927m-6263ft), where you can enjoy some delicious local food.

 Trace your steps back to the starting point.
