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.

Destination

Rifugio Pradidali

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Rifugio Rosetta follow path n. 702 that sinks into the wide Roda Valley, circled by the Roda Peaks to the left, Pale di San Martino and Immink to the right and Val di Roda Peak with its numerous pinnacles. The path was traced in 1912 by a local entrepreneur financed by the baron Von Lesser of Lipsia, that spent a total of 5850 crowns; it descends uniformly between numerous turns all the way to a characteristic area, which is almost plane, called Col delle Fede. From here, in short time, reach the crossroad with path 715 that leads uphill to an exposed ledge equipped with wired cables that allows to proceed easily. This equipped stretch with a few stair steps continues all the way to the base of the gap of the Ball Pass, protected on the left by the Pradidali Peak and on the right by the characteristic rocky formation of the Forchetta Adele. Reach the gap and the path descends towards the green and wide Pradidali Valley, all the way to the rocky balcony where the Rifugio Pradidali is, circled by the most beautiful peaks of the Pale di San Martino.
