This short excursion to the suggestive Lakes of Colbricon crosses through the thick pine forest that cloaks the north-facing slope of the Colbricon and Cavallazza mountains. The trail is perfectly signposted and well beaten and is even suitable for a cross-country pushchair. On the shore of the second lake is the beautifully sited Rifugio Colbricon, an obvious place in which to stop and rest.
The enchanting mountain lakes are also exceptional panoramic points, offering sweeping views of the Cima Bocche Group and the Pala Group.
The excursion is particularly suited to families with children, provided you take a cross-country pushchair.

Rifugio - Lakes of Colbricon (1922 m)
From the Malga Rolle mountain dairy (bar) take the forest road running gently downhill towards the Busa Ferrari ski-lifts ( 1880 m ).
On the grassy meadow, to the right, you will see the signpost to Rifugio - Laghi Colbricon (SAT 348 sign).
Enter the forest along the wide well-beaten track. The first stretch is a gentle uphill climb, after which it continues with pleasant ups and downs. At a certain point the trees recede leaving space to a hollow with the lakes and Rifugio Colbricon ( 1922 m ). Opposite is the characteristic profile of Cima Colbricon, picturesquely reflected in the water.
Trace your steps back to the starting point.
From Predazzo in Val di Fiemme or San Martino di Castrozza – Val di Primiero you can reach Passo Rolle. Follow the road to Malga Rolle ( 1905 m ), which is located slightly downhill from the pass in the direction of Predazzo. Parking spaces available.
