Description

Val Delle Mine is a peaceful valley with a great network of trails just outside of the centre of Livigno. It is more beautiful but lesser-known as the most popular easy access trails from Livigno, making it a great option for those wanting to get away from the crowds.

From the car park P6 in the hamlet of Tresenda, just south of Livigno centre, follow the signs for `L’AL m 1900’, which takes you up the gravel track by the side of a white church and up through a forest. The path quickly leaves the forest, opening out into a clearing where you get fantastic views of the San Rocca area.

Follow signs for the Val Delle Mine refuge. At the refuge, cross the bridge onto the other side of the valley where the gravel track is replaced by rocky singletrack. The path winds gently up along the valley before descending steeply back to the car park from which you started.

TIP: If you would like to extend your run, there are many trails shooting off from the main path in the Val Delle Mine, especially just before you reach the refuge. Explore one or more of these offshoots with an out-and-back, returning to the main trail.
