The Auronzo refuge can be reached from Misurina either by car or by public services, for private vehicles there is a fee to pay for parking.
Public toilets are located near the Auronzo refuge.
Ready? After leaving, we set off along the former military road of the First World War which advances without much difference in height to the Lavaredo refuge, halfway there is the church dedicated to the dead of the First World War. After passing the Lavaredo refuge, the road begins to climb up to the Lavaredo fork, up to here we have admired the Tre Cime from the south side, arrived at the fork it opens before our eyes the verticality of the Tre Cime in their north side.
Continuing from the Lavaredo fork we lose some altitude until reaching the Locatelli refuge, located in a special place since from this position we can admire and enjoy the majesty of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, turning around the refuge our gaze will meet the Croda Rossa di Sesto and going a few steps towards the Croda Rossa below our feet will open the view of two beautiful high mountain lakes.
At the Locatelli refuge you can have some refreshment and, once this is done, you go back to close the tour of the Tre Cime, the first stretch is downhill and takes us to the lowest point of our route, one of the glacial valleys. Here a few moments of rest before tackling the grueling climb ahead.
Reached the top of the climb continue with a continuous ups and downs along a path no longer as easy as the one above, until reaching the hut ....... We go to face the last two climbs that interspersed with a quiet slope lead us to fork Col de Mezzo. We are on the opposite side of the Lavaredo fork and we can admire Lake Misurina, Mount Cristallo and the Cadini di Misurina again, the last stretch to reach the starting point, the Auronzo refuge. End of tour

A path that can satisfy many interests, botany, geology, the history of the Great War, in a natural, fulfilling environment.

This route, given the positive difference in altitude to be tackled, is recommended for medium walkers while for technical skills it is easy to walk.
Recommended hiking shoes, backpack, water, snacks, a change of clothes, rain jacket, first aid kit, inquire about the weather conditions of the day.
Good walk
