- At the end of a long day, those who trek in this off the beaten path region will find friendly rifugios offering beds (with sheets !) and hearty meals accompanied by three kinds of wine. Think about this more carefully: not only don't you have to carry a tent, or a stove, or even a sleeping bag, but someone feeds and looks after you each night. Plus, route finding is never an issue. The trails are well marked with splashes of red and white paint and frequently have signage indicating distances in hiking hours.
This two-day loop hike is roughly 30km (18.75m) with moderate elevation gain and loss. Wildlife viewing opportunities include eagles and deer, while the mountain views the Italian Alpsare enormous. The two days can be divided into practically equal mileage; both require about five hours of hiking with the last night spent at the new Rifugio Torsoleto.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
