Catch the cableway at Campitello (Val di Fassa) and get to Col Rodella, this is an exceptional panoramic point, with a splendid view on the Sassolungo, Sella and Marmolada chains.
Walking down the short slope towards north-west you reach the Trail Federico Augusto, a flat track (2250-2300 metres) at the foot of the Sassolungo south slope that offers a wonderful view on the Val Duron and Catinaccio.
On the way we meet the Refuge Pertini and continuing for another 30 min. we reach the Refuge Sassopiatto, situated in a wide pasture; wonderful view on the Alpe di Siusi.
Recommended period: June - September
You can start the hike at Passo Sella: it becomes a bit longer but is really pleasant and the panorama is beautiful.
From the Refuge Sassopiatto you can easily climb the Sassopiatto (2960 metres). The ascent (that takes more than 2 hours) could be hard if you are not well trained.
