Wonderful excursion at the foot of the Pale di San Martino, one of the most suggestive areas of Trentino.
Very popular route, in a truly unique environment. Val Venegia looks like something out of a storybook; the trees covered with snow, the frozen Travignolo stream, the valleys that seem to be made of cotton wool and the view of the imposing rocky spur of Cimon della Pala, also known as the "Matterhorn of the Dolomites".

The destination is very famous, but with such a view, it is almost impossible to be the only hiker.
Safety guidelines

Safe track and, although long, not difficult.

 

THE 10 RULES FOR HIKERS 

  1. Prepare your itinerary beforehand
  2. Choose an itinerary that suits your physical abilities
  3. Choose suitable clothes and equipment
  4. Check the weather forecast
  5. Hiking by yourself is more risky; if this is the case, take a mobile phone with you
  6. Leave information about your itinerary and your expected return time
  7. If you are not sure about your itinerary, contact an Alpine Guide
  8. Pay attention to signposts and directions that you find along your way
  9. Do not hesitate in going back if you feel too tired
  10. In case of emergency call 112

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions from the local Mountain Guides. GPS tracks are merely indicative of the more standard routes but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions. Correct orientation may be a problem at times along the higher stretches of this route due to fog or low cloud cover.

Starting point
Parking Pian dei Casoni
Directions

WAY UP Walk toward the wood along the valley where the stream Travignolo flows; pass first Malga Venegia (1778 m), then Malga Venegiota (1824 m). Go on to the road which turns slightly right (south) leaving on your left-side some summer trails and walk uphill passing in front of the ropeway conveyor that serves Mulaz mountain hut. Right after leave on your left-hand another trail to Mulaz mountain hut and with the steepest part of the track with some bends you will reach Baita Segantini (2174 m). In a short time, going north, you will get to Costazza peak (2282 m).

WAY DOWN On the same itinerary.

How to get there
From Predazzo drive toward Passo Rolle: once passed the Visitors’ Centre of the Natural Park, turn left to Passo Valles. After about 3 km turn right (direction Val Venegia).
Where to park
Leave your car in the big parking lot (called Pian dei Casoni) at the beginning of the valley.

Warm and waterproof winter clothes. Spare shirt, gloves, wool cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, water, snacks, hiking shoes and hiking poles.

It’s COMPULSORY to carry with you an avalanche rescue kit consisting of avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel.
