You can go to the Nambino lake by two different easy paths: the first one starts from the "Piana di Nambino" (shorter but steepest, about 40 minutes on foot), the second one starts from the Patascoss area (longer but more flat, about 50 minutes on foot). You can arrive at the beginning of these paths by car easily, taking the first junction on the left at the exit of the tunnel if coming from Pinzolo and on the right after the Grostè cable car if coming from Campo Carlo Magno. Or, if you prefer, you can take the shuttle-buses from Madonna di Campiglio - Brenta Alta square to Patascoss area, with a stop in the "Piana di Nambino". (summer transports link).
The route of Campiglio is a circular path around the village. There are many areas where you can start or end this route, as for example: the Pappagallo restaurant, the arrival of the 3-Tre ski slope, the village center, the hotel Gianna in the Palù area. It takes about 2-3 hours on foot for the whole route, but you can make the route in short stretches of paths as well.
The Val Nambrone is a side valley of Val Rendena, near S. Antonio di Mavignola village, between Pinzolo and Madonna di Campiglio. From the main road, take the side road to Val Nambrone and after 4 km you arrive at the parking in front of the Nambrone refuge. From here, take the circular path along the Sarca river of Nambrone - with amazing green water - passing from the beautiful Amola waterfall (about 45 minutes on foot). The Val Nambrone offers suggestive landscapes for having a pic nic, and moreover you can drive to the Cornisello refuge, where you can leave your car and walk to the Cornisello lakes.
The walk around the lakes gives you a unique scenic view on the Brenta Dolomites, sitting on the typical granite rock of Adamello. In the quite stretches of the route, you can hear the whistles of the marmots, and if you are lucky also see a sentry marmot!
