A king's path.

Take the cable car from Campitello to "Col Rodella" and from there you take the no. 557-4 "Friedrich August" path, starting from the mountain hut of the same name. This century old path named after its inventor (the King of Saxony, a keen botanist) is particular in that it follows a relatively flat route on the mountain crest. It enjoys an excellent view over the Fassa Dolomites, from Marmolada, to Sella, and on to Sassolungo. On arriving at Refuge Sasso Piatto you can return to Campitello along path no. 533 and the Val Duron. The fitter and more expert can reach Passo Duron or even the Refuge Alpe di Tires. And return to the village along path no. 532 of Val Duron.
