Cortina d'Ampezzo

Walking paths in Cortina:
Cortina - Pian de Loa - Cascata di Fanes
The Rifugio Scoiattoli, is the starting point for this route, can be conveniently reached by the chairlift starting from Bar Ristorante Bai de Dones, just off the National of the Dolomites. Transport to the valley station can also be arranged by the bus service leaving from Cortina. From Rifugio Scoiattoli take the unpaved road leading in 10 minutes to Rifugio Cinque Torri , just beneath Torre Grande. Continue on the small paved road for about 1 kilometre - the road is open to traffic only during the low season periods - as far as a large hairpin after a level stretch. Here watch for a large sign indicating the trail descending through the woods to the small lakes of Bai de Dones. In another 10 minutes the chairlift bottom station is reached.
Plan de Menìs

The starting point is Pian dei Menìs on the road to the Falzarego Pass, near a former roadsman's house, now Bar Ristorante "da ra Nona". From this point, follow trail up a steep slope through the woods. Coming out of the forest, stunning panoramic views will open over the Cinque Torri ahead, Tofana di Rozes on the left, Averau and Nuvolau on the right. The trail becomes less steep and in a short time Rifugio Scoiattoli is reached. Continue to the right, following the unpaved and in about one hour one gains the summit of Mount Nuvolau , where breathtaking panoramas of the Dolomites can be admired all around. Descend from Mount Nuvolau on trail to Rifugio Averau, walk beneath the southern slopes of Mount Averau to reach Forcella Averau at of height. metres further on, leave trail and continue on trail leading to the charming little lake of Limides with a 15-minute walk. Continue on the same trail down to Rifugio Col Gallina or, alternatively, head back directly to Pian de Menìs on trail.

Rifugio Scoiattoli
Passo Giau, the starting point for this itinerary, can be reached by car from Cortina or Selva di Cadore. From the Giau Pass, take the obvious trail leading straight up to the walls of Ra Gusela; after few metres, bear left beneath the southern face of Nuvolau. Continue on this trail to meet the unpaved road to Rifugio Averau. Go past the inn and hike up the ridge of Mount Nuvolau to its summit, where the mountain inn of the same name is nestled and from where extraordinary panoramic views can be enjoyed. To descend, follow trail down to Rifugio Scoiattoli and Rifugio Cinque Torri and continue on trail back to the Giau Pass.
Around Grande Lagazuoi

Magnificent hike around Grande Lagazuoi; go past the Dalla Chiesa bivouac along the Italian-Austrian lines of 1st World War. Near the bivouac you will find the start of Via Ferrata Tommaselli leading to Cima Fanis Sud. Follow trail 401 as far as Forcella Travenanzes, then turn left on trail. It can be done anticlockwise as well.

Vallon - Lagazuoi
Start on trail and descend Vallon Lagazuoi as far as Lake Lagazuoi, below Cima Scotoni. From here continue to Rifugio Scotoni and Armentarola. This is a much travelled trail for the astounding views, the very few difficulties, the charming mountain lake, and the absence of uphill portions.
Tofana de Rozes

The first stretch, the same as the above described hike, is on trail as far as Malga Travenanzes . From here , turn left on trail for a rather strenuous climbtowards Rifugio Giussani at Forcella Fontana Negra. Once at the mountain inn, head down towards Rifugio Dibona , beneath the towering walls of Tofana. Skirt the imposing rock faces as far as Forcella Col dei Bos on trail and then follow Route No. 3 towards the Falzarego Pass. Strenuous but magnificent hike.
