During WWI, Bocca di Trat, the mountain pass connecting Valle di Ledro with the Lower Sarca area, was heavily guarded by the Austro-Hungarian army. In 1916, Captain von Riccabona was in command.
The itinerary starts at Malga Trat, a mountain dairy reached on the paved road from Val Concei. The “delle vacche” (cows’) path departs from the mountain dairy up towards Caret peak at an altitude of 1805 m a.s.l., where remarkable war trench remains, barracks and a few tunnels are still visible. Further on, after Tomeabrù, the itinerary turns back towards Bocca Saval, a very important centre during the war as it was the site of the Command headquarters of the Austrian sector, of a field hospital and the arrival point of various cableways from Campi to Malga Grassi. Along the flat path one reaches the Pernici refuge, after passing by various communication trenches and war barracks. The return to Boca di Trat is along the main road leading to the bottom of the valley.
