Orto di Donna loop

Orto di Donna loop

From Rifugio Donegani follow the CAI footpath n. 37A to Foce di Giovo. From here with a short deviation you can reach the summit of Pizzo d’Uccello (advised for expert hikers only). The tour continues on the CAI footpath n. 179 under the rock-face of the Cresta Garnerone and the Grondilice, reaching Cava n. 27 and Rifugio Orto di Donna where the “marble” road from Val Seranaia finishes. Then the path goes along the CAI n.179 direction passing nearby the bivacco K2 until the Foce di Cardeto. At this point the CAI n. 178 descends into the beech woods to return to the starting point.
