1. Before leaving, prepare your itinerary well
Take note of the correct trails to take near crossroads and any refreshment points along the way, where you can stop for a break. If you can, download the track to consult it even offline.
2. Respect the environment and choose a trail suitable for your physical preparation
When hiking in the mountains, remember to leave the sites you visit clean. In addition, take into account length, height variance and any technical difficulties of the trail you have chosen.
3. Choose suitable equipment and gear
If you go trekking, you must have technical boots, water bottle, rain jacket, food, a headlight battery, any spare parts and a first-aid kit. If you hike over via ferratas or practice climbing, don’t forget the appropriate technical equipment.
4. Consult the weather reports, …
… especially local ones, that give more specific information. This advice is especially important if you are tackling a via ferrata: before setting off, make sure the weather is stable.
5. It is always better to complete your adventure in company
This way, you can always count on mutual help in case of difficulty. In the mountains, even a simple sprain can become a problem if you are alone.
6. Share information about your itinerary with somebody
Tell friends, family or mountain hut managers which itinerary you intend to take and the estimated time of your return. This information can be essential in case of emergency.
7. Rely on a mountain professional
Alpine guides, mountain hut managers or mid-mountain guides are excellent sources for obtaining useful information on the environmental conditions of mountain routes.
8. Pay attention to the signage along the way
Follow the signage bearing information on trails (number and destination), and the indications you find along the path, namely the white and red trail signs. Always remember to bring a map of the route (paper or digital) with you.
9. Don’t hesitate to go back on your steps
If tiredness arises, if you have doubts about the route or if the weather turns bad, it is better to go back along the trail you already completed rather than risk continuing.
10. In the event of an accident, call 112
When you call, remember to provide information on the exact location of the accident, the activity you were conducting, the number of people involved and their conditions, the weather conditions and the telephone number from which you are calling.
Tips and hints
You reach hut Al Cacciatore using a jeep transfer from San Lorenzo in Banale and then you walk along the forest road 325B going to hut Agostini and passing by Malga di Prato sopra. After an hour, and just some minutes from hut Agostini, you go right along path 320 (Palmieri basso), direction Forcolotta di Noghera (1 hr.); just before this "pass" you find some more difficult passages and at the pass the view is simpy incredible, going from Paganella to the central Brenta Dolomites. The way goes almost flat, passing by the characteristic Pozza Tramontana, before going down rapidly and then upwards to the basis of Cima Brenta Bassa and then to hut Pedrotti.
