Guide to Vie Feratta in the Italian Dolomites


Hikeing Italy, Pale di San Martino

The Dino Buzzati fixed trail is an enjoyable walk and climb in a remote area on the southern slopes of the Pale di San Martino mountain group.  There is no support huts or water points on the route so plan well and ensure you all the necessary supplies.  After the last iron ladder you peak out to a great view of the surrounding mountains.  I suggest doing the route clock wise not reverse.
