Hikes

Whether it is a simple trail leading to a mountain hut or a route that climbs to the 3192 metres of the highest peak in the Pale di San Martino, hiking at higher altitudes will always be highly rewarding.
It is important to remember that even for the easier itineraries it is always a good idea to have a detailed map of the trails and to wear suitable clothing. Furthermore, we recommend you gather all information on the hike beforehand and you ask the Alpine Guides for any necessary details.
Before undertaking an excursion, it is advisable to consult the weather forecast; however, even if it is favourable, keep in mind that there is a greater probability of thunderstorms in the afternoon and it is thus advisable to set off on a hike early in the morning.


The classic and most popular hikes are those that reach the Alpine mountain huts.
Well sign-posted with red and white CAI-SAT markings, the trails are of varying grades and lengths. It is therefore advisable to find out which itinerary is most suited to one’s training and fitness.
Thanks to the strategic position of our valleys, the Alpine mountain huts are distributed over three mountain ranges: Pale di San Martino, Lagorai range and Feltrine Peaks.

HIKES AT THE MALGHE

On high mountain pastures one often encounters malghe (plural for malga), rustic buildings used to shelter livestock in the summer, and, in the past, to also process milk. Today the milk produced in the malghe is collected every day and taken to the Caseificio di Primiero (Primiero’s Cheese Factory).
Many malgari (herdsmen), no longer engaged in cheese production, have organised in recent years to offer hikers a rustic place to eat.

TREKKING OF MEDITATING CHRIST

The small Castellazzo peak mesmerises even those who have spent a lifetime in these mountains. From 2009, it is home to the Cristo Pensante (Meditating Christ) statue, thus becoming its natural cathedral.
The Cristo Pensante Trail can be undertaken by everyone and offers a unique opportunity to combine walking within the Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Nature Park to meditating and tuning into one’s emotions, leading to a newfound harmony with oneself and with the surrounding natural environment.
It is a place to exercise your mind, to ask questions and find answers, to understand how small Man is compared to the immensity of the Universe. And when the sun has dipped below the horizon giving way to a blanket of stars, you will realise that it is not you who is observing Nature but rather Nature that is observing you. In such occurrences, everyone will feel enriched and find a new outlook on life.

CLASSIFICATION OF HIKING DIFFICULTY

Each mountain hike may have different characteristics and difficulties, determined by the nature of the terrain, the type of path, the path exposure, the uphill altitude difference, the maximum height to reach, the season, etc.
To allow you to choose the excursions that you enjoy the most and avoid finding yourself facing higher-than-desired difficulties, there is a special scale which is to be considered approximate, as shown below.
We use the C.A.I. (Italian Alpine Club) acronyms to classify the effort required by the itineraries.


T: Tourist Trail.
Itineraries on small roads, mule tracks or wide paths, with non-long, clear routes that cause no uncertainties or problems with orientation. They require some knowledge of the mountain environment and physical training to walk.

E: Hiking Trail.

Itineraries that take place on paths of all kinds, or on clear passage traces on varied terrain (pastures, debris, or stony ground) with trail markers. They can take place on steep slopes, where, however, the exposed sections are usually protected or secured (cables), they can have single passages or short sections on rocks, not exposed, not tiring nor demanding thanks to the presence of equipment (ladders, rods, cables) that do not require specific gear (harness, carabiners, etc.). They require a sense of orientation, experience and knowledge of the alpine environment, walk training as well as appropriate equipment and footwear.

EE:  Trail for Expert Hikers.

They are usually marked itineraries, but require the ability to move on particular terrain. Paths or traces on difficult terrain (steep and/or slippery slopes of grass, or mixed rock and grass, or rock and debris). Varied terrain, even at relatively high altitudes (stony grounds, short, non-steep snowfields, open slopes with no points of reference). Rocky sections, with minor technical difficulties. They require mountain experience in general and adequate physical preparation.

EEA: Trail for Expert Hikers with Equipment.

This acronym indicates equipped trails or climbing routes, in order to inform hikers that the itinerary requires the use of mandatory self-insurance devices (helmet, harness, rope lanyards, carabiners, shock absorbers). These itineraries require mountain experience, good knowledge of the alpine environment, surefootedness, no vertigo, equipment, and adequate physical preparation. It is essential to know how to properly use the self-insurance devices.
