The Mountain Hut
Serafino Gnutti Mountain Hut is situated in the wild Val Miller, eastern tributary of Val Malga, in Adamello Park
. Parking your car at loc. Ponte del Guat and taking trail no. 23, you can reach it in about 2 hours' walk passing through the famous "Scale del Miller". It is the youngest Mountain Hut of CAI Brescia. Originally, it was a building housing the keepers of the Enel dam. Afterwards, it was renovated and inaugurated in September 1975: it was dedicated to the Gold Medal Serafino Gnutti, sub-lieutenant of Alpini fallen in Albania in 1941. Over the years it has been enlarged and improved, and now offers an adequate accommodation service characterized by a warm and homely atmosphere. The restaurant hall offers about 60 indoor seats, plus further twenty seats in the outdoor picnic area. The small but cosy structure, situated in a domesticated corner of the valley, lies in an enchanting position near Miller Lake, where it reflects itself in particularly clear days. From the Mountain Hut, it is possible to admire an amphitheater of summits, including Adamello Pass with its white stretch of Pian di Neve.
Mountaineering, Climbing, Hiking
The Mountain Hut is well-known as a departure point for the most direct access to Adamello Summit; Terzulli equipped trail is an exciting climbing route developing in a harsh and wonderful environment opening in the spectacular view of Pian di Neve. Another without a doubt interesting climbing route leads to Cima Plem across Cristallo Pass. Moreover, it is also possible to carry out easier tours to discover the small lakes and waterfalls offered by Val Miller in its silence and uncontaminated nature.
If you love climbing, there are brand new trails, recently opened among the granites of the valley. A few minutes from the mountain hut, there are various sites with single-rope sports itineraries, together with classical or modern climbing routes with multiple ropes. The maps of the climbing sites are available in the mountain hut or can be found at www.adamellothehumantouch.it
