Walking in this valley offers great emotions in every season. In winter you can savor the silence of nature, fill your eyes with the white expanses, the trees covered with snow and the majestic walls of Mulaz and Cimon della Pala. The Travignolo stream, with its frozen waterfalls, flows alongside the path. The final destination is one of the most photographed views of Trentino.

Author’s recommendation

We recommend returning around sunset. The Enrosadira on the Pale di San Martino, with shades from pink to bright red to violet is a spectacle that literally leaves you speechless.

Safety information

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.

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.

Turn-by-turn directions

 From the car park in Pian dei Casoni, take the forest road that leads first to Malga Venegia (also open in winter) and then to Malga Venegiota (closed). The route continues reaching a large basin. From here you continue uphill, with wide hairpin bends, until you reach Baita Segantini. A well-deserved stop in this enchanting place allows you to focus on the particularities of the imposing Dolomite walls declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

Return to the car park along the same path.
