In San Martino di Castrozza, leave the car at parking area of the Colverde – Rosetta funicular and take the footpath 702, which goes up towards the Pale di San Martino Plateau along the Val di Roda. After the first flat stretch of the forest road, the trail starts to trail up to the Col dei Bechi and later the Col dele Fède; from there, stay on the right side and follow the footpath 715 in the direction of Passo di Ball. Just before the Pass, a short stretch of the cable aided path makes the hiking experience a little more interesting, and offer later a spectacular view on Cima Canali. From the Passo di Ball, a 20 minutes descending walk will lead you to Pradidali Hut, to spend there the first night.
