Below Rifugio Silvio Agostini begins the interesting panoramic and fairly easy Sentiero Basso "Elio Palmieri" SAT 320 (E) that crosses the amphitheatre of the Upper Val d'Ambiez and climbs the Forcolotta di Noghera (2423 m) along an easy up and down path in 1 hour. You continue along the path waymarked SAT 320 that from Forcolotta enters the Upper Val di Ceda, descends slightly and runs along the deep karst depression of Pozza Tramontana. The path goes round the huge Pozza Tramontana without descending to the bottom and then climbs again to the foot of the southern walls of Cima Brenta Bassa where it meets the SAT 358 (EEA - D) path. Walking time Forcolotta di Noghera - SAT 358 junction 1 hour. Here you continue on the SAT 358 (EEA - D) path that in 0:30 hours brings you to Rifugio Pedrotti and Tosa (2491 m). Total walking time Rifugio S. Agostini - Rifugio Pedrotti Tosa 2.30 hours. Rifugio Pedrotti is situated at 2491 m on a wide saddle between Cima Brenta Bassa and Croz del Rifugio and Rifugio Tosa lies just below it on a small terrace at the foot of Croz del Rifugio at 2439 m. These two refuges, in the centre of the Brenta Dolomites, lie a short way from Bocca di Brenta, the "historic" pass traversed way back in 1864. They are an ideal base for getting to know the Brenta, as they permit hikers not only to enter the wild southern part of the Group, but also the famous routes - including the ferrata delle Bocchette - in the central part. Rifugio Tosa was the very first refuge built by the S.A.T. in 1881. Originally it was a small hut with only one room. Now it is linked to the nearby Rifugio Pedrotti, built in the early 1900s by the Sektion Bremen of the D.u.Oe.A.V. on ground belonging to the S.A.T.. After a long and controversial lawsuit, settled in 1914 by the Supreme Court of Vienna, the latter refuge became the property of the S.A.T.. The refuge was renovated in 1920 and a year later dedicated to the memory of Tommaso Pedrotti, a Trentino volunteer.
