Hike to Mount Dosso di Peder

This hike is a simple summit victory in the Val Martello valley with a wonderful view on the peaks of the Cevedale and Lake Gioveretto

We park on the fee paying car park at the Lake Gioveretto (Zufritt Reservoir) at 1,880 m a.s.l. in the Stelvio National Park. After crossing the road, we start the ascent towards the Livi Mountain Hut (Lyfialm) on path no. 10. The path ascends quite steeply in 45 minutes, alternatively there is a forest path. After about 300 m altitude difference we reach the Livi Mountain Hut (2,165 m a.s.l.).

Some of us decide to stay at the mountain hut followed by a visit to the 600-year-old larches, which are about 15 minutes' walk from the hut. The others are heading further towards Mt. Dosso di Peder (Pederköpfl). This summit lies a 50 minutes' walk above the hut. First, we have to climb steeply up on path no. 33 through the forest. Above the timber line the path continues with a moderate gradient. At the end, the path climbs steeply up once again to the cairns, which tell us, that we have reached the summit of Mt. Dosso di Peder (2,585 m a.s.l.).

From here enjoy a great panorama on Mt. Cima Rossa di Martello and the glaciated peaks of Mt. Cevedale, as well as down into the valley on Lake Gioveretto. For the descent we choose the same route, alternatively path no. 39 leads via the Peder-Stier Mountain Hut (Peder-Stieralm, then path no. 20a) down to our starting point. Behind the car park at Lake Gioveretto there is a viewpoint with life-size wooden animals.
