Information about Sentiero del Cacciatore

The equipped trail "Sentiero del Cacciatore" is an interesting and incredibly scenic path in the fantastic Pale di San Martino. It does not feature particular technical issues even though some exposed stretches are not equipped. It leads to the summit crossing the spectacular and deep couloir of the Boal dei Pissotti on an easy but rather aerial grassy ridge.

The via ferrata features a 650 meter elevation gain (1400 meters for the whole excursion). The equipped trail Sentiero del Cacciatore was recently refurbished and it is very well maintained. It is equipped with metal wire and rungs.

The excursion starts from valley Val Canali with a beautiful and very scenic itinerary that leads to the attack of the equipped trail. To get to the summit the hikers have to keep on climbing on a short yet not easy rocky ridge. The descent path leads to Rifugio Velo and down to a nice meadow from where the view on Spigolo del Velo is spectacular. Through the easy equipped trail Camillo De Paoli, then, we go down until right below the walls of Mount Cimerlo and then back to the starting point.
