From the Mulaz Refuge we get to Passo del Mulaz (2610 m). Before getting to the Pass, with an easy ascent of about 45 minutes it’s possible to reach the top of the Mulaz peak (2906 m), to enjoy the stunning panorama. We then go down toward Val Venegia through the footpath 710 “Quinto Scalet”; from the path we can admire the amazing natural architectures of the peak of the Campanile di Valgrande (2995 m), the Cima di Valgrande (3038 m) and cima dei Bureloni (3130 m). We then will arrive to the Campigol della Vezzana, just beneath the homonymous peak, and thus at the Travignolo springs. From here, we move up to the chalet of Baita Segantini (2170 m), and a shuttle bus will bring us down to Passo Rolle. We will come back to San Martino di Castrozza by bus, using public transports. Another route starts from Baita Segantini: it is possible to walk toward the pasture of Malga Fosse following the footpath 712 “dei Finanzieri”, then go on to the chalet Rifugio Col Verde (2000 m). From the chalet Col Verde you can choose to take the funicular or to walk down the footpath 701 toward San Martino di Castrozza. We highly suggest to check in advance the timetable of the shuttle bus, of the public transports and of the Colverde cable car.
