As you descend down trail 331, you re-enter the world of vegetation as grass starts to grow on top of the terraced dolomite terrain. It is quite pleasant, actually, walking through this open, grassy terrain. At the junction of trail 331 and 316, you have a choice. You could head down 316 to rifugio Tuckett, and from there back down to Vallesinella, or you can continue on 331 to Rifugio Graffer and on down to Vallesinella from there. Since I did the latter, that's what'll be described here.

Evening in the Brenta
Just outside rifugio Graffer is a large junction with many signs. The one you want is for trail 382. This is a quite scenic trail that winds down through scenic meadows, then descends into pleasant open forest, eventually arriving back at the Vallesinella parking lot. There is a slightly confusing section where 382 enters an open spot in the forest where many different trails intersect. Cross the open meadow (there's a building of some sort on the left) diagonally downward through the open area and continue on 382.
