Description

The route that reaches, from the village of Sirór – on the bottom of the valley -, the hut of Malga Civertaghe is not a particularly demanding itinerary. The route is especially ideal in mid-seasons, since it develops along trails and roads in good condition, not featuring any sort of danger. Although the most classic and touristic access route to the hut starts from San Martino di Castrozza, given the presence of the cycle – pedestrian path, it is possible to draw a pleasant loop, mostly immersed in the woods, which allows you to reach the hut in just a little more than an hour and a half.

The route starts near the sport area of Sirór, located north of the pretty village located which lies in the extreme north of the bottom of Primiero Valley. The trail initially proceeds slightly uphill, following the paved road that runs along the left bank of the Cismón stream, towards the village of San Martino di Castrozza. After passing a bridge that crosses the stream bed to the west, the route proceeds uphill, always following the course of the stream to the west (Signpost No. 359), away from the main road SS 50 of Passo Rolle which develops at a higher altitude . The itinerary continues along the cycle – pedestrian paved  road, following the signs towards San Martino di Castrozza, returning to the left side of the Cismón stream, where the climb starts being more challenging.

After about 3 km from the start, you reach a third bridge, named Pont del Friz (935 m asl), where – instead of proceeding along the main road that leads to the nearby “Zivertaghe” power plant – the route takes the path of the Signpost No. 717 to the right towards the east. The Signpost No. 717 is an historic path with paved sections that climbs steeply but steadily in the woods towards Malga Civertaghe, featuring perhaps the most fascinating section – certainly the most silent – of the itinerary. The path quickly climbs the slope west of the meadows of Prati Rónzi, then intersects the remains of a gravel road and continues, keeping the direction, until it passes a valley. After going around a wooded slope, the path slightly loses altitude and enters a marshy area, for then regains altitude until it comes out in the small meadow of Ronz dei Paléti. After that, at the crossroads with the Signpost No. 745 by the location of Bellestraie, the itinerary continues to the left, entering the impluvium of Val de la Vècia. After passing the water spring and the stream, the trail then continues along a partially paved road. Once out on the edge of the pasture of Malga Civertaghe, after having surrounded the artificial basin of Civertaghe and reached the intersection with the Signpost No. 713, located just a few meters from the hut, the route arrives at Malga Civertaghe (1,375 m asl).

After leaving the hut, the trail runs downhill on the paved road “dei Camòi” (main road connecting Malga Civertaghe); once having left the pasture behind you, when you reach the bridge over the Val di Ròda stream, the route descends towards the south, along the cycle – pedestrian road that connects San Martino di Castrozza with Siror. At the height of Val de la Vècia, just above the Zivertàghe power plant, you reach the rope bridge. The bridge, designed with six supporting ropes and inaugurated in July 2020, is 58 m long and reaches a height of 23 m. After crossing the bridge, a few steep hairpin bends are faced in succession. The slope starts becoming light again while approaching the bed of the Cismón stream, where you reach Pont del Friz. From the bridge, the route simply follows  you – backwards – the first stretch of its way of ascent.
