After the bucolic landscapes of Val Concei, the road gets up to Malga Trat and Rifugio Pernici, one hairpin curve after the other. The descent, technically a bit more demanding, unfolds through the fields and pastures that overlook the village of Locca.
During the Great War, Trat was a strategic area for the control of Val Concei. For this reason it was heavily fortified by the Austrian army. Rifugio Pernici was thus first built as an Austrian barracks for the Kaiserjäger and Standschützen (i.e. infantrymen and artillerymen) serving along the Ledro front.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
