A memorable road trip to Costazza Pass
Passo della Costazza (Baita Segantini) is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.181m (7,155ft) above the sea level, located in Trentino in Italy. The road to the pass starts from the Passo Rolle.
The pass is located on the ridge between Val Travignolo and Val Cismon. The road is unpaved with much sharp big stones along the way, climbing up to a restaurant (a shepherd’s cottage where the 19th-century painter Segantini once lived) and a lake.
It’s closed in winters. The road has many hairpin turns. The summit hosts a mountain refuge with great views of the mountain Cimon di Pala. Starting from Passo Rolle, the ascent is 2.9km. Over this distance the elevation gain is 222 meters. The average percentage is 7,6%.
