Pasubio Dolomites the area of World War I – medium hiking from hut to hut
Pasubio Group presents the same Dolomite rock as the Brenta Group which explains its second name “The little Dolomites” They are situated between Trentino and Veneto. On a clear day you can normally see the white beaches of Venice from some of the tops of the Pasubio mountain group. In this area used to run the border between Austria and Italy and this is also where the soldiers fought between 1916 to 1918. We can visit many remainders of forts, trenches and tunnels of WW1. The environment offers meadow and forests with easy paths suitable for hiking. The most difficult trekking follows the traces and trenches of WW1 on the ridges and ledges up to the Dolomites rock walls. The Pasubio Group is ca. 1 hr. by car from Lake Garda and is accessible from May to October.
