    From Rifugio Forni up to Rifugio Branca through the Glaciolocico Path (less than the first leg and higher than the return). Beautiful path for variety and fantastic view on all the main Ortles-Cevedale peaks. DIFFICULTY: Medium (3/5) due to difference in height and passages on bridges. TIME: about 4 hours LENGTH: about 11 km RATING: 9/10
    Difficulty: MODERATE
    Evaluation: 9/10
