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.

Author’s recommendation

We strongly suggest the crossing of the Pala Group, from the Rifugio Pradidali to the Rifugio G. Pedrotti al Rosetta.

Equipment

Hiking boots/shoes, windbreaker, a change of clothes. Telescopic hiking sticks are useful.

Destination

Rifugio Pradidali (2278m)

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.

Getting there

You reach Fiera di Primiero along road SS50. In Tonadico, you turn onto road SS347 in the direction of Passo Cereda, Val Canali. When you reach Castelpietra, you turn left for Val Canali and park in Cant del Gal locality (1175 m).

Parking

Cant del Gal locality (1175m).
