The road from San Lorenzo to Prada cobbled is a captivating trip down memory lane to rediscover the old life of the communities living in the Giudicarie area. Historically, this road was a very popular route among the locals, especially during the haymaking season, as they used it to procure the best forage for farm animals.

Turn-by-turn directions

The route follows the paved road that leads to Località La Rí (as you leave San Lorenzo in the direction of Molveno, follow the signposted road on the left). When you reach the mountain hut, park your car and follow the SAT 345 path which leads through Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta. Walk for about 40 minutes, entirely through a forest of beech trees, until you reach Prada where you can quench your thirst at the small fountain carved in a tree trunk. Here, continue along the cattle track heading for the fields then, further ahead, take the flat path on the right leading to a lookout point, on the edge of the cliffs, where you can enjoy a spectacular view over Lake Molveno, Nembia, Adalo and the surrounding mountains. Prada is the starting point of many excursions: Cima Ghez -Pass dela Giaz- Val Dalun & Val Ambiéz; SAT 345 route to Cima Rosati - Val di San Lorenzo - Val Noghera, Forcola di Noghera - Val Ambiéz; SAT 345E route to Forcella Bregain - Malga Ben - Val Ambiéz - Rifugio Al Cacciatore. Make your way back via the same route.

Un po' noiosa la salita di su strada cementata di sassi ma viene ripagata dalla vista dal lato sud del lago di Molveno e soprattutto dal percorso di chiusura dell'anello. A taglio sotto il costone in mezzo a pratoni con una vista bellissima e discesa in abetaia con alberi secolari. Valore aggiunto: fatto il 16 di Agosto in totale solitudine!

Il panorama del lago di Molveno da Prada merita la fatica ! Salito a piedi da san Lorenzo in banale e non dalla Alpenrose ! Tempo di percorrenza circa 2,5 ore dislivello circa 700 mt ma panorama mozzafiato ! ( fiato che era gia' mozzato dalla salita) :-)

Hallo Team Outdooractive, ich war heute auf dem beschriebenen Weg und habe in dem herrlich gelegenen Refugio alpenrose eingekehrt (und werde dort auch übernachten). Das Essen ist von hervorragender Qualität und besteht aus regionaltypischen Produkten; z. B.: Risotto al frutti di Bosco!!! Etc. Die Website des Refugio alpenrose : Frage: warum ist das Refugio alpenrose in Eurer Wegbeschreibung nicht mit der Site verknüpft? Die vorgeschlagene Tour kann man auch mit der Brentano-Umrundung kombinieren.
