Val Cedec

Trekking from the Forni Mountain Hut to the Pizzini Mountain Hut

From the Ghiacciaio dei Forni Hotel ascend the small, steep and winding road northwards until you reach bridleway S555 along the lefthand side of Val Cedec. The path runs through meadows and offers wonderful views, first of the Forni Glacier and then of Gran Zebrù, 3,857 m. After the first stretch you pass the Baita de Codec, ignoring the paths to the opposite side of the valley.

The trail is flat to the foot of the Pizzini Refuge at an altitude of 2,706 m. Descend along path S528: as you pass Pianon di Cedec and a ruined barracks you may see trenches dating from the First World War.

The path, flat at first, winds through meadows until you reach the last descent that leads to the Forni Refuge.
