From the Zonta mountain hut to Mt Maggio

The medium snow-shoe tour leads from the Malga Zonta to Mt Maggio (1,853 m a.s.l.), providing a breathtaking view on the surrounding mountain scenery

From the parking space of the Malga Zonta at 1,430 m a.s.l., we walk towards north, that is to say to the Malga Melegna at 1,550 m. On this first section we can also make a short side trip to the Base Tuono, a former NATO base.

We follow, still towards north, the eastern ridge of the Monte Maggio. First the way leads us over the cross-country ski lanes, then across the forest (there are hardly any signposts!). Follow the mountain ridge in western direction, without losing sight of the Monte Maggio. Once we reached the summit we can enjoy a breathtaking view to the Brenta Dolomites, the Lagorai mountain chain and the Pasubio. On the way back, we can take the road to the Passo Coe, for reaching our starting point via the cross-country ski lanes.

Please note: this round tour is of medium difficulty and provides a great panoramic view on the Folgaria high plateau and the surrounding mountain scenery. Consider that after snow-fall, the slopes might be exposed to avalanches!
