    Rifugio GRAUZARIA
    Tel 331.8598861
    Etape trés contrastée avec une premiere partie dans un magnifique environnement de feuillus puis de pins et de mélèzes. Itinéraire trés peu fréquenté mais présence sur la trace de deux confortables refuges non gardés. Le jour de mon passage, un couple était présent pour l'entretien du Rifugio Monte Sernio ou se trouve un point d'eau. Malgré de gros orages ininterrompus, la suite est plus banale sur de petits sentiers parfois effacés puis une route forestière jusqu'à Illegio avant d'arriver à Tolmezzo par un long trajet sur la route.

    Rifugio Grauzaria Tel 331.8598861 Step very contrasted with the first part in a magnificent hardwood and pine and larch. Very little used route but presence on the trail of two comfortable refuges unstaffed. The day of my visit, a couple was there to maintain the Rifugio Monte Sernio where there is a water point. Despite large uninterrupted storms, the suite is more commonplace on small paths and sometimes erased a forest road to Illegio before reaching Tolmezzo by a long drive on the road.

    Other option in IMPONZO (my friend Miria cf CouchSurfing), there is a trail that goes from Imponzo to Illegio
    Tolmezzo - Illegio is all road, past Illegio there is lots of road to be walked. a bus is running daily around 7am from Tolmezzo stazione to Illegio
    rif Sernio have a reliable water source, fireplace + wood (great location), on the other side, casera del mestri also opened but no water (fireplace), 1h30 for a return trip to get the water from rif Grauzaria (friendly keeper with goats..not busy place) which can be avoided if not needed)

    We spent two rainy nights in Tolmezzo at the Alberge Benvenuto on the east edge of town. Less expensive than the ones in centreville, very friendly staff and an excellent restaurant.
