Author’s recommendation

The central section of narrow trail is highly technical, so be sure to keep your weight back and watch out for leaves, which can increase braking distances.

Safety information

  • The roads, trails, and ski runs indicated are often used in the opposite direction as well, so keep an eye out for hikers, other cyclists, and vehicles.
  • On trails and other narrow roadways, pay close attention to hikers and slow down or stop as seems appropriate under the circumstances.
  • Always were a helmet and never underestimate the difficulty of the trails.
  • Be careful when crossing wood bridges, as they can often be slippery.
  • Avoid skidding as this can damage both your tires and the road surface.

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

Pinzolo lifts

Turn-by-turn directions

From Pinzolo, first take the Pinzolo-Prà Rodont gondola lift followed by the Prà Rodont–Doss del Sabion chair lift. The view from Doss del Sabion is spectacular, with Madonna di Campiglio to the north, the Brenta Dolomites to the east, Val Rendena to the south, and the Adamello-Presanella Group to the west. From the arrival point of the Doss del Sabion chair lift (follow 968 signs), head down the dirt road to the right towards Pascolo del Grual. Continue along the main road until you reach the casina (a milk-storage hut) of Malga Grual.

Follow the 968 trail to Malga Grual. Turn right (following 969 signs) towards the lower station of the Grual chair lift and continue along the left-hand trail into the forest. Continue along this single-track trail until you hit the forest road.

Turn right and follow this road for about 15 yards. Turn left onto the second section of trail that begins fairly easily, but soon becomes more difficult. The second part of this trail can be very steep, so pay particular attention when crossing the two ravines and when entering the forest road.

Once back on the forest road, turn left and continue on for about 1 km (about two-thirds of a mile) until you see the signs telling you to turn right.

The third section of the trail, which starts here, is a lot of fun and not as challenging as the previous section. At the end of this trail, you will return to a section of forest road (for about 250 yards) until the sign. Here, you return to the trail, first down to the Cavradoss bridge and then up towards Maso Doss and Maso Pin.

From Maso Pin, the road becomes paved and takes you to the quaint village of S. Antonio di Mavignola. Just below the village church, turn left and follow the old, winding road to Ponte Canale. Continue on the paved road through Tulot (lifts) and on to the first houses of Pinzolo. Turn left and follow the main road until the ski lifts.
