From the main path short detours towards the ‘marmitte dei giganti’ (rocky formations of glacial origin) and the old war shooting posts. We then reach the chestnut forest of Monte Corno (400m) in roughly 40 mins and from here we continue towards “La Busa dei Capitani” (480m), where we will visit the ruins of the command posts. From here, path n.637, which leads to Tre Croci (580m) bove. A short  break and a visit to the restored tunnels before heading back along different trails. We will follow path n.637 once again towards Nago, finishing off the loop circuit.
