This hike will take you from San Cassiano to the Malga Valparola alp, a historic site, where the mineral extracted in Livinallongo was transported, smelted and transformed into iron. The ruins of the smelting furnaces are now abandoned and in pieces. Today, only the German hut’s name “Eisenöfenalm“ (Hut of the Iron Furnaces), serves as a reminder of the economic prosperity, now long gone but once enjoyed by this extraordinarily picturesque place.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking area Sciaré, follow trail nr. 24B south-westward direction Malga Valparola alp. Getting to a fork, proceed on the left on trail nr. 18 slightly uphill, reaching the Malga Valparola alp, right in the middle of lovely woods and meadows (35 min.). Moving on from the alp, climb up keeping to the left, still through the wood and coming to the provincial road from San Cassiano to Passo Valparola. Skirt the road and cross it after 600 m, always following the sign nr. 18 for Passo Valparola, passing a small war cemetery. A little further, coming out once more on the provincial road, you arrive in a few minutes to Passo Valparola and to the bus stop.

Public transport

Getting to the starting point of the tour or point of interest by public transport is easy and convenient.
