Hike across the Lusia Alp

The mountain lake of the Lusia alpine pasture is the destination of our today’s hike which leads us through blooming alpine meadows.

Our moderate hiking tour starts at the mountain station of the Lusia Cable Car (“le Cune”), which brought us up from the Valle di San Pellegrino valley near Moena. At the observation deck, which offers already a gorgeous view on the surrounding alpine world, we walk downhill along the driveway (no. 614) to the Passo Lusia mountain pass, where also the eponymous mountain hut is located. Here we follow the path no. 633 which leads us uphill to the “Baite Lastè” and further to the “La Trincea” hill (2,425 m a.s.l., wall remains of Austrian trenches from World War I). From there the path proceeds downhill to the well, where the Lago di Lusia lake is located.

Here we have the possibility to do a circular walk along the Gronton via ferrata (no. 634) up to the eponymous bivouac at 2,545 m a.s.l. to enjoy a fantastic view on the smaller neighbouring lakes. This extension of the tour takes 60 – 90 minutes. For our way back we take the markers 633 and 614 again. Particularly impressive is the view on the Catinaccio, Lagorai, Pala group and the Marmolada massif as well as the rich variety of flora in the alpine meadows.
