The Cros de Mala is one of the most south mountain of Altopiano di Pinè, with panoramica and quiet view. If you want to enjoy this itinerary, the advice it's to do it in autumn when the deciduous wood "explode" of colours

Author’s recommendation

Between the interesting point along the proposed track we report the visit of the "baracche dei Russi" site, erected by Russian prisoners during the first phase of the great war of which there's fixed kitchen or ovens.

Destination

Car park at the entrance to the forest road or piazza di Faida di Piné (info in the "how to get there" section)

Turn-by-turn directions

After parking (info in the "how to get there" section), you take the forest road in north-east directio; the road is in slight climb but with a nice slope.

Follow for about 2Km, and after a hairpin bend to the right, leave for a climb path that started at the left of the forest road ("strada militare" indications - incomplete and cornerstone Dos dei Pini 1506m").

The path continues immersed in the wood in north-east direction and soon after reaches a clearing; go through this one continuing in south-east direction on the path tracks. The path steep clims in the wood to win the last slope and then continue more gently until reach Cros de Mala.

Arrived on the highest point the panorama is incredible: the Val dei Mocheni that with an information panel illustrates us the various peaks of this valley, the Caldonazzo lake, the Vigolana, the Brenta group, etc... the mountain they develop as far as the eye can see and "feed" looks and emotion. On the top there's a stop point with benches and tables to eat a sandwich or talk together.

 The tour continuing: with "Mala" indication, take the forest road in descent in south-west direction; go along it for about 500m until an intersections of roads where there's a green pole (coordinate N46°6’19,0 E11°16’6,4 quote 1502 m) and take the only climb street in north-east direction for 200m until a vertical signage that says "M. Brada ruderi baracche 0,05".

Here - with a 5 minutes variant, go to visit some ancient ovens  of the great war, restructured that reach taking the little flat path near the signage (looking under the highway in the left it's possible reach them easily).

After have done this variant on the forest road that reconnects on the road that we have done it in climb and follow the same until the started point.

Equipment

Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What you should have in your rucksack:

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views.

Bella passeggiata, un po' lunga su asfalto, poca segnaletica nei posti opportuni, struggente passare in mezzo alla devastazione degli alberi ma nessuna difficoltà. Peccato che il tempo non era dei migliori altrimenti avremmo goduto di una spettacolare visuale. Bella sorpresa in cima.... Ma non svelo nulla! 😊
