Hiking Sassolungo, Sassopiato and Val Duron in Dolomiti

Image
During a recent vacation in Trentino we have hiked a bit on the great Dolomiti mountains. In particular in the zone around Canazei.
The first is a trip on the south side of the Sassolungo group, then walking down along the Val Duron. The starting point of this trip is Col Rodella from Campitello di Fassa. Then it walks up and down along the path 557 (Federico Augusto) passing Rifugio Pertini and Rifugio Sassopiatto. From the last Rifugio it descends along the path 533 in the Val Duron, passing by Rifugio Micheluzzi. Finally it ends in Campitello.
The map shows the path from Col Rodella and ends in Canazei after taking the walking path from Campitello. There is also a detour from Col Rodella to the Forcella Sassolungo top by means of cable car.
You can review this trip on Google Earth using the following KML or GPX link. 
A description of this path can be found in other blogs, like this.
