The Frontline Trail

This large and well signposted path follows the front line between the Italian and the Austrian soldiers during World War 1 on Mount Lagazuoi. 
This trail is very easy and suitable for everybody.

Next to the parking area of the Lagazuoi cable car at the Falzarego Pass begins the wide and well-marked hiking trail which leads up to the Travenanzes saddle, at the Lagazuoi saddle and then to the Lagazuoi refuge, which is only 50 metres away from the top station of the cable car.

From the refuge it is only a short walk to the summit cross of the Little Lagazuoi at an altitude of 2778 metres. From here you will enjoy unobstructed panoramic views of famous Dolomite peaks such as Pelmo, Antelao, Tofane, Marmolada, Piz Boe, Civetta and the Sella massiv.
