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.
The Col Verde - Passo della Rosetta path is not technically difficult. However, it takes place in a rocky environment between Dolomitic outcrops, ramps, and ledges. So some sections may be exposed, even though they are generally well protected with parapets and metal handrails. We would advise against attempting this route for people who are not familiar with exposed mountainous terrain. For expert hikers, it will be a true joy.
Tips and hintsRifugio Giovanni Pedrotti alla Rosetta
After leaving the car park of the Colverde-Rosetta cable cars, take the wide dirt-track which zigzags up the steep ski slope. After about an hour, you reach the Rifugio Colverde (2,000 m) near the arrival point of the Colverde cable car and the start of the Rosetta cable car. From here, take route 701 on the right and after about 20 minutes, you leave the meadows and start to go uphill on rock. The trail continues up with a slight gradient for another 20 minutes, cutting diagonally under the path of the cable car. Here, the assisted section starts (metal cables, parapets) which winds its way up to the cable car pylon. The path is not very challenging and in about 30 minutes brings you out on the area where the pylon is located. From here, the path flattens out and takes you to the Altopiano delle Pale and the Rifugio Rosetta.
Alternatively, you could follow route 701a which takes you up to the end of the cable car run, where you turn left and take the path which reaches the cross of Rosetta in 15 minutes. There is an amazing view of the Vette Feltrine and Lagorai peaks, and the Pale di San Luciano mountain range to the north.
You can return to the starting point on the Rosetta and Colverde lifts, or along the same route you followed on the way up.
Getting thereYou reach San Martino di Castrozza along road SS50. Above the town, you will easily find the parking area for the Colverde ski lift facility.
