Colfosco - Panorama path
From Colfosco through Forcelles to the Ju de Frara/Passo Gardena
Overview: Enjoyable hike at altitude set against the imposing backdrop of the Grup dl Sela, with a particularly lovely view of the Val de Misdé and Piz Boè. Just the same, even though surrounded by the magnificent mountain scenes, don’t miss the smaller examples of beauty that line the way, the splendid Dolomite flora.
Starting point: Colfosco – bus stop (1624 m)
Itinerary: From the church in Colfosco, cross Val Edelweiß climbing up and westwards, taking trail nr. 4 in the direction of Puez, until you reach the Ütia Edelweiß hut. A left turn here brings you to a rough track which runs alongside the ski piste up to Forcelles. From the hut (closed in summer) cross over a ridge and, after a short descent, continue on the flat, arriving at a second ridge from where you can see the end part of the valley which leads to the Ju de Frara/Passo Gardena. Past a stream and, having crossed the meadows, you will come to a junction. From here, following trail nr. 8/A on the left, you will be at the Jimmy hut in 20 minutes. A brief pause and back on trail nr. 2 and down to the Ju de Frara/Passo Gardena (bus stop).
End point: Ju de Frara/Passo Gardena (2119 m)
