Turn-by-turn directions

Also known as the Trail of Legends, the Dolomites High Mountain Trail No. 2 crosses the Dolomites from north to south. Beginning on the Plose mountain overlooking Brixen, the trail lies on the western Dolomites, running over the Puez-Geisler mountain chain and Sella mountains. There are breathtaking views from the Bindelweg Trail and of the Alpine Marmolada glacier. Passing unusual geological formations and crossing the lesser-known Feltrin Dolomites, trail no. 2 follows the Pala mountain group. Though technically one of the easier high-altitude Dolomitic routes, conditions can sometimes be quite challenging. Due to several steep ascents, hikers require considerable mountaineering experience as well as the necessary equipment when crossing the Marmolada-Scharte ridge. Planning for the long-distance hike is estimated at about two weeks. On the signposts, the route is marked red-white-red and as number 2 in the triangle.

Questions and answers

Question from Christof Rörig  · July 26, 2019 · Community
Hallo, ich möchte ab 31.7. bis 5.8. von der Plosehütte bis zum Passo san Pellegrino wandern, also einen ersten Teil des Alta Via 2. Nun habe ich mich erstmals auf diese Seite begeben und finden den Hinweis, dass die Tour geschlossen sei? Kann mir da jemand etwas zu sagen, also ob vollständig zu oder von wo bis wo doch offen? Ganz herzlichen Dank! Viele Grüße Christof
