From Cortina centre, drive for 12.5 km along SR48 road of the Dolomites heading to Passo Falzarego as far as a parking area on your right, departure point of the hike.
Wear your snowshoes and, as soon as you start hiking, you encounter Cason de Rozes, a stone structure built against a big boulder. Continue uphill, go over a bridge and keep left at the next intersection. The trail on the right leads to Col dei Bos.
A couple of steep hairpins lead you to a clearing where you see the ruins of the Italian troops war hospital, built against the rocky wall. An important intervention to restore the ruins is being planned. Once here we can retrace our steps.
Though we feel a tour guide is not necessary, hiring a mountain guide for your complete safety is always a good idea.
Snowshoes and hiking poles can be rented at Snow Service Shop at 206 Corso Italia (Ph. 0436 868679)
