Trip description

Start at the hikers' car park Kühhof above the village Lazfons

This easy hike to Rifugio Chiusa  begins at the large hikers' car park above the village of Lazfons with the interesting name Kühhof. A pretty wayside cross already points to our destination. Right at the beginning, a cattle grid has to be crossed, which can be a bit difficult for wheelchairs with small wheels. For all others, this will be no problem.

We hike along trail no. 1 in the direction of Rifugio Chiusa, which initially winds its way gently uphill with a maximum gradient of 15% through sparse woodland and then along alpine meadows with great views. Along the trail, a forest road with fine but firm white gravel, benches invite you to stop and rest.

At the destination: Rifugio Chiusa

After about 1 to 1 ½ hours, we reach Rifugio Chiusa, which is located in the middle of a picturesque alpine meadow. From here you have a great view of the Dolomites on the opposite side of the hut. While children can romp extensively in the playground in front of Rifugio Chiusa, adults enjoy the wonderful view of the Mount Sasso Putia, the Odle Group in Val di Funes and the Sassolungo Group with a cool drink. The hut is ideal for a hike in early summer or late autumn, as it is then not yet too hot on the alpine meadows and the sparse forest sections still bring some cooling.

The way back is the same as the way there.

Trail conditions

Continuously unpaved forest road with fine to coarse gravel.
