Safety information

Choose the route according to your experience and your physical preparation: start with short distances first!

The more, the merrier: leaving alone for a hike can be risky, travel with at least one other person, the experience of a Trekking is better when shared with friends and family!

Program your Trekking in advance, check trails and paths on the maps, have a look online to find out more about your itinerary, ask somebody who already walked the same route.

Prepare your backpack: have a look at our check-list to be sure you already packed all the equipment you may need during the Trekking!

Don’t forget to check the weather forecast.

If you really want to try the experience of a Trekking but you don’t feel ready to do it by your own,  just ask one of our Alpine Guides!

Try to estimate an average journey-time of every route, considering the physical condition of each member of the group.

Inform the Hut owner or who is waiting for you at home about your time of arrival and the itinerary.

Keep your eyes open: while you’re walking, check the number of each footpath, but don’t forget to enjoy nature and its magic!

A plan B is always a good idea! Organize an alternative route in case of bad weather or unforeseen event: go back if it’s necessary, play it safe!

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Passo Rolle (1,959 m)


Rifugio Mulaz

Turn-by-turn directions

From Passo Rolle (car park of the old Segantini chairlift), follow the 710 path up to the chalet of Baita Segantini (2.174 m.a.s.l.). From there, walk down to Val Venegia through the pasture of Pian della Vezzana (2.010 m.a.s.l.) to gradually go up following the 749 path to “Passo di Venegiota”. Take the path on the right and continue on the 751 track following the trail n. 2 of the Alta Via Dolomiti route, which runs along the eastern side of Mulaz to finally reach the Mulaz Hut (2.571 m.a.s.l.). If you leave in the afternoon, as an alternative it is possible to take a faster route to get to the Hut: follow the 710 path called “Quinto Scalet” which from Pian della Vezzana goes up to Passo del Mulaz (2.619 m.a.s.l.) and then descend to the Mulaz Hut. Once on the Pass called Passo del Mulaz, it is possible to reach the top of the mountain (2.906  m.a.s.l.) following the tracks and the red trail signs for about 40 minutes to finally enjoy the wonderful panorama of the entire mountain range of Pale di San Martino and the surrounding peaks.
