From Bagolino you bring the trunk road of P.sso Crocedomini and following Valle Dorizzo direction, after 2 km before arriving at Gaver in a place called “Balòt” you see a big house “Villa Roma”. You can park here and go on a not asphalted road that becomes a mule-road after a bridge made of wood. This road goes steep through the valley of “Vendolaro” and leads to a track that arrives at Bruffione plain. You turn right at the dairy farm “Malga Bruffione di Sotto” ( a pole with a sign), you cross a stream on a small bridge and, following the sign, the track goes up to Bruffione lakes. At the dairy farm you cross a stream that comes out from the lakes, you go left, run along it for a while then you go up on the left. Going on you keep on going up north-east direction and you arrive at a valley that leads to Passo Brealone, mt 2019. The top of the mountain, mt 2145, could be reached following the ridge, north direction. To come back to the valley you can do the same route you did at the beginning or take a military road, track sign n.410, that leads to Passo di Bruffione. There you turn left following the track n.414 that takes you to Bruffione valley till the plain that has got the same name: Bruffione.Then you go the same way you did at the beginning.
