Destination

Hut Selvata

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from Pradel locality (1367 m), you follow trail number 340. The first part of the trail develops at the feet of the impressive south face of the Croz dell’Altissimo, in a truly breathtaking context. In the more exposed sections, the route has been obtained by digging the path out of the rock. This peculiarity gives the hiker exceptional views of Valle delle Seghe below, and of the pinnacles of the Brenta Dolomites.

Along this panoramic path, you reach Rifugio Croz dell’Altissimo (1430 m).

From here, you continue to follow trail 340 in the direction of Rifugio Selvata. After passing an ample and articulated ford, the path begins the crossing that passes beneath the pinnacles of the “Castello dei Massodi”, and then heads into the vegetation of the Conca della Selvata, where the mountain hut is located (1657 m) - the destination of the walk. 

You return along the same route.

Bellissima esperienza! La nostra parte preferita é stata quella fino al rifugio Croz dell'Altissimo in cui si può ammirare il panorama da una parte e costeggiare la roccia dall'altra (molto simpatico il passaggio nella roccia). Consigliatissimo 👍🏼

Sehr schöne Tour mit zwei Hütten mit sehr nettem Personal auf der Strecke. Ist gut zu gehen Der Bergweg ist eine schöne abwechslungsreiche Strecke mit tollen Aussichten auf die Brentariesen und das Tal mit dem See. Selbst der Rückweg im Regen war interessant. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Bel giro che permette di affacciarsi sulle Dolomiti di Brenta. Noi lo abbiamo percorso ad anello per non rifare la stessa strada al ritorno: una volta arrivati al Rif. Selvata abbiamo percorso il 332 fino alla malga Andalo (attualmente in ristrutturazione) quindi il sentiero attrezzato Donini (in assenza di vertigini percorribile anche senza kit ferrata, sono brevi tratti esposti con cavo) siamo giunti alla Baita Ciclamino per il pranzo. Da lì ritorno direttamente a Molveno
