Safety information

The 6 rules for walking in the mountains:
  1. the feasibility of routes in a mountain environment is closely linked to the contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, changes in the environment and the weather conditions. For this reason, make sure you are well informed about the route and conditions before setting out. You can do this by contacting your nearest Information Office;
  2. if you expect to reach a malga or mountain refuge, make sure that this will be open and, if you intend to stop to eat or sleep, call beforehand to book;
  3. leave information about your route with someone and always take your mobile phone with you;
  4. in the event of an accident, call 112;
  5. never leave litter in the mountains and, if possible, avoid leaving your rubbish at mountain refuges or malgas that you visit;
  6. if you spot wild animals along the way, we invite you to stay on the path, not go too near, not shout and to keep your dog on a lead, to stop it instinctively chasing and scaring the animal.

Starting point

loc. S. Rocco - Peio Paese

Public transportation

Sie können Peio Paese mit dem Linienbus der Trentino Trasporti MALÉ - MEZZANA - FUCINE – COGOLO - PEIO erreichen (laden Sie die Fahrpläne für die Hin- und Rückfahrt herunter). Von Peio Paese aus erreicht man den Ausgangspunkt der Route in etwa einer Viertelstunde zu Fuß. Gehen Sie auf den Hügel von San Rocco (österreichisch-ungarischer Soldatenfriedhof). 

How to get there

Take the S.S. 42 state road to the fork for Val di Peio (on your right, coming from Malè). Turn here and join the S.P. 87 provincial road for about ten kilometres to Peio Paese or beyond, to the San Rocco ridge.

Where to park

Park at the bus stop in the town of Peio, accessible from the road that, on the right, on the hairpin bend, is next to the bar and leads to a big car park. Alternatively, park near the Austro-Hungarian cemetery in San Rocco.
For this walk we recommend hiking boots and a cap, with a waterproof jacket, sun cream and a bottle of water in your backpack. Remember your camera or mobile phone for immortalising the views and favourite sights. If you like, you can then share them on social media at the hashtag #visitvaldisole.
