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!

Turn-by-turn directions

1st STAGE
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.


2nd STAGE
From the Mulaz Hut (2.571 m.a.s.l.) climb up heading South and the saddle called Forcella Margherita (2.655 m.a.s.l.) following the 703 path, at the bottom of Cima del Focobon. After about 30 minutes, take the via ferrata which leads to Passo delle Farangole (2.814 m.a.s.l.) to descend along the Val Grande heading to Val delle Comelle, following the the trail n. 2 of the Alta Via Dolomiti route up to an altitude of 2.290 metres above sea level. Walk on the slight slope which runs along the northern side of Val delle Comelle, to reach the so called Pian dei Cantoni (2.313 m.a.s.l.) and then climb up to the Rosetta Hut (2.581 m.a.s.l.). Possible variation:  from the Val Grande, before walking down the gorge of Comelle, take the 716 path heading to the bivouac called Bivacco Brunner (2.667 m.a.s.l.) and then climb up to Cima della Vezzana (3.192 m.a.s.l., the highest peak of Pale di San Martino) on the via ferrata called Gabitta d’Ignoti. From the top of Vezzana, walk downhill heading to Travignolo Pass and then to Val dei Cantoni along the 716 path, walk up to Bettega Pass (2.660 m.a.s.l) and finally reach the Pale di San Martino plateau and the Rosetta Hut (2.581 m.a.s.l).

3rd STAGE
From the Rosetta Hut walk downhill on the 701 path towards San Martino di Castrozza, once at an altitude 2.300 metres above sea level, take the 712 path (also called “dei Finanzieri” path) until you get to the start of the Bolver Lugli al Cimon della Pala via ferrata, recently renovated. This very panoramic and lofty via ferrata goes up the southern side of Cimon della Pala and permits to reach the Fiamme Gialle bivouac (3.005 m.a.s.l.). From the bivouac, walk downhill towards Passo del Travignolo (2.935 m.a.s.l.), to admire the wonderful view on the Val Venegia and the route of the first day of the Tour. To get back to the Rosetta Hut, walk down the Val dei Cantoni on the 716 path to climb up to Passo Bettega (2.660 m.a.s.l.) and then reach the Pale di San Martino plateau and the Hut.  From here, it is possible to get back to Passo Rolle following the 701 path first and then the 712 path (also called “dei Finanzieri” path) or you can enjoy the descent on the Rosetta tramway and the Colverde gondolas to reach San Martino di Castrozza and then get back to Passo Rolle by bus or by taxi. Possible variation: From Passo del Travignolo, it is possible to climb up in about one hour to the top of the near Cima della Vezzana (3.192 m.a.s.l.) following the 716 path, to reach the highest Peak of the mountain range of Pale di San Martino.
