Straightforward hike of great geological and nature interest. Park at Malga Coltrondo and follow the military road signed 149 as it zigzags through large flower-filled meadows to Sella del Quaternà (1.5 hrs). From here a quick ascent takes you to the peak and its breathtaking view (n.b. surefootedness required). To get back to your starting point return to the col, turn left and then left again downhill along the valley to Alpe di Nemes. In July the slopes of Mt Quaternà and the border ridge are full of wonderful Alpenrose in flower. Before you get to the latter turn left (signs visible) and return to Malga Coltrondo.
