Safety information

Attention: starting on August 1st, 2016, the construction work of the new accumulation zone and snowmaking lines in Ski Area Ces – Valcigolera will start, and for this reason we recommend walking the trails with caution especially in the sections close to the site areas.

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.

Destination

Malga Ces

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Caserota of Malga Ces you descend toward San Martino di Castrozza along the beautiful path through the woods. Once you reach the Valcigolera forest road you proceed following the signs for San Martino to a junction: from here, by turning right, you go up the forest road until the bridge that crosses the Cigolera river. Before the bridge, the Sentiero Heidi (Heidi Path) begins, which directly leads to the Malga Cigolera.

Once at the Malga, you go up the ski slope for a few hundred meters and you enter the Sentiero della Pace (Path of Peace) as indicated by the signs, in the direction of Malga Ces, until you reach the Record track. Once on the track, on the right side of this, you will find the signs for the Sentiero del Cervo (Deer Path) leading downwards to Malga Ces.

From the Malga, you take the uphill Sentiero del Cielo (Sky’s Path), and when this intersects the Path of Peace, continue on the latter, which leads to Colbricon pass and then to the lakes of Colbricon. From the lakes you still go down towards Malga Ces through the path under the Cavallazza; then you climb up again towards the Piani della Cavallazza and then go down to Villa Pisoni towards Malga Fosse di Sotto. From here, you back to Malga Ces through the forest gardens.
