The refuge Cassinelli is situated at the foot of the Presolana, the “Queen of the Orobie”: in a panoramic position it enjoys a splendid view of the valley below and of the fascinating calcareous massif. Following the signs for Castione della Presolana we reach the Passo della Presolana (1297m) and we can park your car. On the left hand side of the road there is the beginning of a cart track going slightly up ( the sign CAI 315 for “Baita Cassinelli-Cappella Savina-Grotta dei Pagani-Cima Presolana”). We enter the wood and continue as far as the second curve where we leave the road and take a wide path which goes through the pine forest. Having reached about 1,500m altitude we come out of the wood and continue going slightly upwards among sparse bushes. From here we can already admire the unmistakable and stupendous mass of the Presolana with its rocky walls. We reach the end of the wood and enter a zone of pastures; a little ahead, on a prominent rock, we can see the signs for Baita Cassinelli. Go up again for a brief stretch as far as a junction, at this point we can continue along the grassy ridge or go and take the mule track on the left which leads to the refuge Baita Cassinelli (1568m)
