The Regina Elena Refuge
Starting from Pian della Casa del Re (1735 m), the route leads along an ex military road, passing by the turnoff for the Remondino Refuge on the left. When the road ends (there is a bar blocking vehicles beyond that point), the road becomes a wide, grassy mule track; after a few dozen meters, the route leaves the mule track, turning off to the right on the trail that leads to the Regina Elena Refuge.
The trail winds along the various branches of the Gesso della Valletta torrent, crossing over two of them on wooden footbridges before veering slightly westward and then turning abruptly to the south. Passing by a trail on the left, the route surmounts a modest ridge, among rocks and the occasional larch, and then joins a flat narrow trail. Following this to the left, in a few meters the route terminates at the Regina Elena Refuge (1833 m, 25 minutes from Pian della Casa del Re).
