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-Prà Rodont lifts

Turn-by-turn directions

From Pinzolo, first take the Pinzolo-Prà Rodont gondola lift and then 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 the Grual pasture.

Continue along the main road until you reach the casina (a milk-storage hut) of Malga Grual. Cross the stream and head back into the forest. An up-and-down road will take you to the pastureland around Malga Cioca. Continue down along the dirt road, which will cut across the Dolomitica ski run a couple of times, until you reach the village of Prà Rodont.

From here, the road will be paved and begins to descend through a series of switchbacks and the villages of Valastun (vista point), Poc, Calchera, Rigoza, and Maniva. Before returning to Pinzolo, you may want to visit the military chapel, which was refurbished in memory of World War I.

There can be a great difference in temperature between Pinzolo, at 800m (2,625 ft), and Doss del Sabion, at 2,100m (6,890 ft), so be prepared with appropriate clothing.
