The Rifugio Pradidali is located at the feet of the impressive walls of Cima Canali, Cima di Ball, and Sass Maor - true masterpieces of nature.

Safety information

The trail marked 709 to the Rifugio Pradidali sometimes develops over Dolomitic outcrops, ramps and ledges. So some sections may be exposed, even though they are generally well protected with parapets and metal handrails.

1) Prepare your itinerary

2) Choose a route that is suitable for your skill level

3) Choose suitable equipment and gear

4) Consult the snow/weather bulletins

5) Heading out on your own is more risky

6) Leave information on your itinerary and on the approximate time you expect to return

7) Do not hesitate to seek the support of a professional

8) Pay attention to the information and signs that you find along the trail

9) Do not hesitate to follow your steps backwards

10) In case of an accident, sound the alarm by calling the emergency number 112.

 

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 parking area, you follow the directions for trail 709, in the direction of Rifugio Pradidali. Initially, the trail follows a forest road, which then joins a path that follows Val Pradidali. You ignore the path to the right, which leads to Malga Pradidali, and you continue to climb along trail 709.

At an altitude of about 1640 m, you reach a fork in Pedemonte locality. Here, you continue along trail 709, and ignore the trail marked 719, which branches off to the left.

The trail climbs decisively, zigzagging up the slope and passing a few rocky steps. The second part of the trail goes through some exposed sections, which are well secured with metal handrails. At an altitude of about 1930 m, you reach the turn off for the trail called “Sentiero Riccardo Simon”. Here, you ignore the path on the right that leads to the “Sentiero Attrezzato delle Sadole - Bivacco Minazio”, and continue straight uphill on the path that travels the steep grassy slopes, rocky outcrops and screes.

A final section, now at the centre of the valley, allows you to reach the Rifugio Pradidali, which departs from trail 709 slightly on the left.

To return, you follow the same route backwards.
