One of the busiest and most spectacular itineraries on Monte Baldo, the ideal start of the ridge path (trail marker no. 651) which then leads from the Telegrafo Refuge to Tratto Spino above Malcesine.
The itinerary develops in its entirety near the southern Baldense ridge, open to great views of the Po valley, the Apennines, the great circle of the Alps and the underlying Lake Garda. The interest of this itinerary is given not only by its panoramic nature but also by the visit of the glacial cirques excavated in the Quaternary period by the hanging glaciers of the Baldo and by the presence of a rich and varied flora, especially in early summer. Sightings of chamois are also very frequent.
It starts from the Fiori del Baldo Refuge following the track and passing under the Chierego Refuge (1907m).
Continue along the dirt road (Path n ° 658) climbing steadily but not demanding; below Cima Costabella the road changes sides along the magnificent Circo Glaciale delle Buse. It has a typical bowl shape and is closed between two summits: Cima Costabella (2062 m) and Vetta delle Buse (2154 m). The north side is not very steep and covered by vegetation, while the south side is characterized by rocky debris and is very steep, a feature common to the other cirques of Mount Baldo.
This leads to the Coal Santo Pass (1980 m); from here you go up again along the various hairpin bends of the track to Passo del Camino (2128 m). After a saddle carved into the rock, the route (again n ° 658) leads to the South Tyrolean side of Monte Baldo. From the pass you can see the remains of a glacial-karst landscape in the form of dolomitic and rocky spiers on the eastern side. This landscape, unique in the Baldense chain, is an iconeme of the peaks.
After about half an hour you will arrive at the Telegrafo Refuge which is the target of our itinerary.
