Cascata delle Pile

Cascata delle Pile is a waterfall in Val D’Oten, northwest of Calalzo di Cadore, in the region Veneto, Italy

Val D’Oten is a long valley formed by the chain Marmarole that closes to the north and by the massif of Mount Antelao that dominates northwest. To get there you must go through the city center of Calalzo di Cadore. There are (small) signs for Val D’Oten and Cascata delle Pile. Drive on to Praciadelan from where you have to walk to Cascata delle Pile. The road ends at a parking at Bar Alla pineta (gps 46.472202, 12.338537). I think it is not allowed to drive further on the gravel road, but I am not sure…

It is appr. a 90 minute walk (5 kilometer, ascend 400 m) along a dust road that ends near the waterfall. The road is not always in good condition due to the constant moving of the cones of gravel. The last part is through a narrow gorge and you have to find your way over big rocks and over small streams. Looks like a nice hike to me.
