from POZZA D’AST  to  COLLE SAN FERMO

Time: 45 minutes

path length: 1,8  km

Starting from “Chiesetta dei caduti”, walking along the woody path on the left you arrive to “Torrione” Mount and to the natural reserve, where if you are lucky you can see fallow deers.

If you take the uphill path to the right from the “Ast” well, you will reach the hill of San Fermo, where there is a picnic area and a small church, built in the 19th century and renovated in 1902. From here you can climb on Mount Colombina (1458 meters), where in May 1951 an iron cross was placed. On the top of this mountain there is also a “geolabe” with the name of the mountains that can be admired for the fantastic 360 degree panorama.

From Colle San Fermo, near the lake, passing behind the church and taking the path keeping to the left and then, after a few meters, to the right, go up along the path that leads to the summit of Mount Colombina (1458 m), where in the May 1951 an iron cross weighing 7 quintals and 8.50 m high was placed. Furthermore, on the top of this mountain a geolabe plaque has been installed with the names of the many mountains that can be admired thanks to the spectacular 360 ° view that can be admired.  In the structure of the geolabe there is a small drawer that contains a summit diary in which you can leave your dedication.

This last stretch of the path, from Colle San Fermo to the top of Monte Colombina, involves a further walk for 800m and, about half an hour and a difference in height of 200m.
