The laying of this path began in 1936, thanks to the Trentino Mountaineering Society (SAT), with the aim to facilitate the connection of the huts located in the Brenta massif. The Bocchette centrali (middle), start from Bocca di Brenta (2552 m) and lead to Bocca dei Armi (2749 m). They are considered easier than the Bocchette Alte (high), even though they are very exposed. They twist and turn under the spectacular peaks of Brenta alta, Campanil Basso, Campanil Alto, Torre delgli Sfulmini and Torre di Brenta.
The Bocchette Alte, harder and more exposed than the Centrali, reach different summits such as Cima Molveno, the Spallone dei Massodi and Cima Brenta, joining the Bocca dei Armi (2749 m) with Bocca di Tuckett (2464 m).
