You can walk a wonderful trekking ring route, from Molveno, to reach Località Pradel, a nice panoramic spot at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites. Most of the trail is developed in the forest and offers great views on Lake Molveno. It is suitable for families with fit/well-trained kids. In località Pradel there is a very beautiful park, with benches, and a very well equipped playground.
You reach the starting lift station of the Molveno - Pradel Chairlift. Close to the station you find the trail going up, connecting with a paved road (960 m). Take it and after a few meters you get to a crossroad. On the left you will see the signs “Refuge Pradel – Refuge Montanara”.
Take the dirt road on the left, which offers great views on Molveno Lake and follow it until you reach 1,050 m; you will see a bench on a crossroad, with a trail ascending into the forest, on the left (direction Refuge Montanara).
Take this trail and stay, without deviations, and ascend in the forest for about 200 m. When you reach 1,200 m you get to a crossroad, close to a restaurant-mountain hut. Take again left, for another 100 m and reach the forestry road (1,296 m).
Go left, following the “Pradel” direction, on the small way which takes you fast to Località Pradel (1,365 m) and you will find a very beautiful playground, with benches and tables, and various bars and restaurants.
After taking a rest, from Pradel you continue on the left, on the only small way going into the forest, towards Refuge Croz dell’Altissimo.
The trail is pretty flat and very pleasant to walk.
After 1 km you need to pay attention because you need to take the trail on the left, following the signs “Molveno” (crossroad at 1,320 m). You follow the trail in the forest, going long transversally. The initial part of the trail is very rocky, but then it becomes an easy dirt road.
Along the road you reach 1,060 m and reach the crossroad, with a signal “Molveno”. Take right on the trail - enjoy beautiful views on Lake Molveno, and you reach easily the village.
