Hard | 7 hrs

Mt. Creta di Collinetta (Cellon)/Frischenkofel is located above the Plöckenpass/Passo di Monte Croce Carnico and overlooks two outdoor museums, Freikofel and Pal Piccolo/Kleiner Pal, on the other side of the pass. The top of Mt. Creta di Collinetta can be accessed either from the Austrian side (via ferrata) which requires better skills as some sections are fitted with steel cables and rungs (safety equipment recommended), or by a less demanding trail from the Italian side.
If you choose the access from the Austrian side you will have to climb up the 183 metres long Celon-Schulter tunnel with the elevation difference of 110 metres. The circular trail passes some observation posts, tunnels, which offered protection to the soldiers, remains of military buildings, caves, fortifications etc. The descent from the summit, where a cross stands, can be done on the Italian side of the mountain. Follow the marked trails CAI 147 and CAI 146.
