    Stunning hike - signage sucks - triangulation required
    Arrived at Zanser Alm parking around 9am and parking area was fifty percent full. As directed by parking attendant, we set off on a clockwise hike of the recommended loop. Everyone seemed to be hiking clockwise but anti-clockwise would work also , except that the mountain views would come into play on the last half of the hike. We think the trail is called the Adolf Munkel trail. Very soon we encountered stunning views of the Puez Odles peaks. In fact the first half of this hike was one of the most photogenic we have ever hiked. There were lots of people on the trail. It seemed every few hundred meters, there was a perfect selfie location. Then we got lost. Signage sucks. Our first clue was that the hordes of hikers disappeared. We started meeting folks hiking the opposite direction. They told us to turn and head back to trail 34 or 36 which would take us back to the parking area at Zanser Alm. That trail entered meadow and forest with just occasional mountain views. The trail itself deteriorated to mud and trees roots. Not well maintained. We had to keep asking folks for the Zanser Alm parking. Signage sucks! Just remember, if hiking clockwise, follow the sign for 34 or 36 to the right! Otherwise, you will end up miles from your car.

    Un angolo di paradiso 🌺🌼🌸
    Nel cuore delle Dolomiti trovate il parco del Puez-Odle. Un paesaggio lunare dove potete trovare tutti i tipi di roccia, strati di sedimento e forme di disgregazione caratteristici per le montagne dolomitiche. Buona vacanza ed in questo periodo tante gemme di fiori meravigliosi. 🌸🌼🌺

    E' davvero emozionante passeggiare in compagnia delle spettacolari e maestose cime delle Odle, i celebri "aghi" in lingua ladina. Il parco, che abbiamo raggiunto dal Rasciesa tramite il sentiero 35 che conduce al rifugio Brogles, regala scorci panoramici magnifici! Lungo il percorso si incontrano anche cavalli, asinelli e mucche al pascolo che rendono l'escursione ancor più affascinante.

This was a fantastic detour from the city. I spent a few hours hiking (moderate difficulty) broken up by a great meal and cold beer at Geisler Alm situated at the base of the Dolomite Mountains. I even saw a herd of cows hiking the trail on their walk between pastures. One tip...make sure to grab a map or ask someone about the route unless you are fluent in German or Italian. The directional signs all start to look/sound the same after a while and I followed a small crowd out and exited the trail into a parking lot about an hour's walk from MY parking lot. I've hiked a lot, so the blame for this mistake sits totally on me.

This amazing park offers such a variety of amazing views your head will swim. Though most of the trails follow a specific section of the Dolomites, one sees them from many different elevations and framed by a wide variety (e.g. larch, evergreens, huge fallen rocks, massive rockslides, etc). Beware of park maps that can be quite unclear, especially regarding loop trails. Our 8km hike turned into 16 because the maps showed trails at the far end that either weren't signed or weren't there anymore, and no good indications of elevation. Nonetheless, it was a spectacular day in the mountains.

Our day was all clear blue skies as we drove this area,quite breath takeing and the only thing missing was the snow.....having said that perhaps snow would have taken more away than it added.
This is a must when in the area.

My wife and I hiked the Adolf Munkel Weg/Trail. Excellent hike right to the base of the mountains. Not overly difficult, but has some demands. We really enjoyed the Geisler Alm, picnic lunch, and relaxing before making our way down. You must visit.

After a night of stay in Lago di Braies we started to drive to Val di Funes to see the famous church of Santa Maddalena and it’s been a great experience the beauty and grandeur of the awesome Dolomites.

At 2km height, this is a very nice walk. You can go clockwise or counterclockwise around the mountains in front of you. Clockwise feels more easy to us. Its still a pretty lengthy walk (the times on the signs are pretty accurate) with enough mountaincabins/stops in between. Very nice views in so many different ways.
From out pov, 1 of the must do when you are in this area

Followed the 7 day hike suggested in Lonely Planet, "Walking in Italy". Was exceptional experience. Booked refuges 2.5 months before trip which was NOT too soon.

Getting to the place was a bit scary as you go trough the twisted mountain roads and have to pass by even city buses. But after that we were greeted by stunning views of dolomite mountains. There are also several little restaurant where you can get some tasty food for quite reasonable price. You can take shorter or longer routes through the nature park. Unforgettable views!
